Vanuatu… The other side of the world, on the Tropic of Capricorn, an archipelago of volcanic islands, still untouched, that shelters tribal communities cultivating the Pacific Art of Living.
In this tropical paradise whose very name invites you to dream, U2 is not known, nor is The Cure. Bob Marley is the only one who has left his imprint. You hear only the hot rhythm of reggae or the sunny melodies of the traditional string bands.
It is in these islands that Feal and Gaël (2 ex members of French reggae band Mister Gang) have decided to 'chimize'* the world by adapting 12 English pop classics .. Bowie, U2, Supertramp, Human League, and others .. in an amazing remake…
These re-interpretations by Vanuatu singers mix inspiration, spontaneity and talent. You should expect to experience the warmth, smiles and languor of the South Pacific. Prepare to be 'sunnied-up' by the Sunshiners, and remember: here time stands still…
*To chimize (transitive verb) = Render positive, open, and smiley under the impulse of rhythms and specific melodies. To chimize the mind = Free the mind while warming the heart. Increase the temperature.
