Synopsis

A tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, Laya Project is a documentary about the lives and music culture of coastal and surrounding communities in the 2004 Tsunami-affected regions. Laya Project is a visual journey documenting folk music recorded and filmed on location in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, India and Myanmar. Some of these performances are rare, and documented for the first time. The musicians are primarily from coastal communities affected by the Tsunami of December 26th, 2004. For the international team of musicians, sound engineers and camera men who came together for this unique production, Laya Project is a celebration of life, and is dedicated to the survivors. Crossing boundaries of genre while still preserving the music of the people, Laya Projects’ essence is artistic purity and simplicity, from a nonjudgmental point of view. The production creates a composition that mixes and enhances the original recordings, and embarks on a visual and musical journey crossing borders, while preserving the music of the people.
