Film
Originally produced by The Planet Spins in 2014.
What's it about? The performers of the Vanuatu Womens Water Music group hail from the remote northern tropical islands of Gaua and Merelava in Vanuatu. They travel the world performing the Na Mag and Ne Leang dances as a prelude to the water music. The Water Music of Vanuatu is a performance that needs to be seen and heard to be believed. This incredible film shuns Western/European narrative concepts. Instead it adopts a contemporary style of its own: Art Doco. The result is a non-narrative meditation on indigenous performance and representation. It has received 5-star review from Songlines Magazine (UK) and is described as "absolutely perfect" and "visually stunning as well as culturally important".
