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 the 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 in 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.
