About Small Island Big Song

Small Island Big Song is a multi-platform project uniting the seafaring cultures of the Pacific and Indian Oceans through songs, sending a collaborative and urgent message from a region at the frontline of the Climate Crisis. With two award-winning albums, a feature film, educational programs, and a live touring concert, Taiwanese producer BaoBao Chen and Australian music producer/filmmaker Tim Cole make cultural connections across vast oceans, working with artists dedicating to preserving the cultural voice of their people by singing in their native tongues and using traditional instrumentation. These uniques sounds meet with contemporary styles - roots-reggae, beats, grunge, RnB, folk, and spoken-word - and establish musical dialogues between cultures such as Madagascar, Aotearoa, Taiwan, Mauritius, Marshall Islands, Papua New Guinea, Tahiti and Rapa Nui, creating "one coherent jaw dropping piece.” “Indigenous instruments support modern sensibilities and vice versa … [It’s] one very big, very happy family doing what they do best while helping get the word out on a most serious issue." –Tom Orr, Roots World, USA
