The album was composed, recorded and overdubbed in nature, on the artists' custodial land. A fair trade music release.

“If you hear an Are'Are song you can feel and see how long it has been there. The songs are documents of who we are, the only gift our ancestors gave us."

- Charles Maimarosia, the Solomon Islands.

​“The knowledge and values in the songs are in more than the words. They are in the tempo and the melody. They are in the vibration.”

- Alena Murang, Kelabit Borneo

 

"In our globalised, computerised world, music can bring us awareness of who we are, our history and our values and our connection to nature. I bring what my grandfather poured into me.” 

- Yoyo Tuki, Rapa Nui/Easter Island
