Weaving a moving musical tapestry through an evening of Pacific Islander song, the six fascinating women of the Barefoot Divas, from New Zealand, Australia, and Papua New Guinea, create stirring music drawn from the struggles and aspirations of their indigenous cultures. Backed by a six-piece band, the women sing in multiple native languages, melding traditional Maori, Aboriginal, Papua New Guinean, and Roma Gypsy music into a compelling contemporary hybrid of soaring melodies and lush harmonies. "Whether or not you believe in divinity, being in the presence of...the bold and brashy Barefoot Divas is an undeniably otherworldly experience" (Daily Telegraph, Sydney).
