Vanuatu Women's Water Music

 

The performers of the Vanuatu Women’s Water Music group hail from the remote northern tropical islands of Vanuatu. They travel the world performing the Na Mag and Ne Lang dances as a prelude to the mystical water music, dressed in their traditional costumes of Gaua and Mere Lava made from flowers and leaves, coconuts and pandanus.

 

Their performance is truly mesmerizing as they reimagine the old with contemporary expressions of Matto - bringing together traditional beats and rhythms with ukulele-led melodies and soaring vocal harmonies.

 

The Water Music of Vanuatu is a performance that needs to be seen (and heard) to be believed.

Made possible through the Christensen Foundation, Further Arts, and Ethos Global Foundation.
