ABOUT SMALL ISLAND BIG SONG
The past three years, producers Tim Cole and BaoBao Chen have been traveling to 16 islands, filming and recording with respected cultural voices from Rapa Nui/Easter Island to Madagascar, from Taiwan to New Zealand. They asked musicians to play on each other’s songs. The result is a powerful, organic, authentic experience with a contemporary message.
“We have reached a threshold that our collective lifestyles have directly effected the global environmental, at this level our planet could be viewed as a fragile Island which we all are responsible for. An Island too precious to loose.”
