World Water Day Virtual Film Screening: Water Music

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Leweton Cultural Group hails from the remote tropical northern islands of Gaua and Merelava in Vanuatu, and live in a village in Espiritu Santo where they present, share, and maintain their unique cultural traditions and practises across cultures and generations. This film is the first of its kind, welcoming viewers to explore the life and customs of the village, the mesmerising women’s water music and the energetic sounds of String band Matto. Viewers will be humbled by their friendly and gentle natures, inspired by their simple lifestyles, and captivated by their performances.

This exclusive live stream for Balance-Unbalance 2015 celebrates World Water Day 2015 and connects the conference's themes to an Island community that is experiencing the true ramifications of climate change.

The Leweton Cultural Group performing Vanuatu Women’s Water Music were a highlight for many at Balance-Unbalance 2013 in Australia, and we are thrilled to showcase their new film. 

The Water Music film will be introduced during the Balance-Unbalance program launch event on WaterWheel. You can participate online by clicking the following link:
