Testimonials

From audience, participants & partners

‘Song to the Ocean’ was so evocative and a gift of deep reverence to the ocean – thank you. It’s so important our community has opportunities like this to connect more deeply to the ocean and grow in appreciation and the desire to protect it.

Bianca Clifton, audience member


One of the most hauntingly beautiful and most talked about pieces from the festival. The collaborative effort of the team from Australia and Sarawak (Malaysia) is a winner.

Joe Sidek, festival director

It felt stupendous performing in ‘Song to the Ocean’. Wearing the light sculpture…hearing Whaia perform… being able to share music in such a beautiful atmosphere. I am a changed violinist.
