Framed in a theatrical narrative amongst panoramic visuals of the artist’s homelands, the audience experiences a musical journey across the breadth and into the soul of island nations of Pacific and Indian Ocean, meeting an ancient seafaring ancestry and confronting the impacts of climate crisis head on.

Drawing on a roster of renowned first nation artists from across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, the concert features musicians performing irresistible oceanic grooves to soulful island ballads engaging audiences from huge festival stages to intimate theatres. Combining music, spoken word and AV projections featuring footage collected during a 3-year film trip across 16 countries guided by the artists on their homelands, creating “One coherent jaw dropping piece” as described by Rob Schwartz – Billboard.

Toured to 15 countries across four continents, it has become a feature of SIBS concerts for encores to spontaneously erupt into a shared celebration, with instruments, voices and dancing bodies rising from the seats.

This performance is made possible with support from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Shippensburg University, Shippensburg University’s Office of Inclusion, Belonging and Social Equity, and Climate Solutions PA.
