The producers have bought together this all- star group of Tasmanian musicians, who bridge cultures and push boundaries. They bring music from Persia, ASIA, and East AFRICA. Traditional, Lyrical, Pop, Reggaeton and Hip Hop.
Across the Borders of language and genre comes the music of Continental Drift. Tradition and innovation has brought together music from the pop stars of Iran, and the master poets of South India, The village music of Sudan with the dancehall beats of Uganda.
Over the space of 2015, this group of Musicians has been working together to create a new hybrid Tasmanian music. Tradition working with innovation, musicians working across cultural boundaries, this is an exciting development in this state. 25 Musicians have recorded an awesome compilation CD of 25 Songs, and put together a non-stop energetic and powerful show.
