The Sounds of New Caledonia
New Caledonia is a country that appeals to the senses; full of rich colours, extraordinary flavours and sounds as interesting and diverse as its landscape and people. It is home to the world’s largest tropical lagoon, a beautiful blend of French and Kanak culture, with fantastic scenery and wildlife. New Caledonia Tourism sent musicians “Crooked Colours” to the heart of the Pacific and followed their young, adventurous spirits as they searched for, discovered and captured the everyday sounds of the islands.
Crooked Colours are an Australian band on the rise, receiving heavy air play on Triple J, the release of their acclaimed debut album and a recent sold out national tour. Their mix of indie and electronic sounds which are moulded into diverse and layered productions, are both subtle and addictive. Their wandering, unstructured musical style is a perfect reflection of New Caledonia’s idyllic and relaxed atmosphere.
The Band went on a mission to New Caledonia to explore urban and wild regions, to capture interesting sounds and video along their journey, and to collate this collection of sounds into a music piece that connects the listener to the destination.
Discover the many worlds of New Caledonia
Ever wondered what a cowboy hat, snorkelling set and bottle of French champagne have in common?
That’s exactly the challenge we set for a group of strangers, allowing them just 30 seconds to identify where a suitcase had come from, for the chance to fly there themselves. The guesses came in from all corners of the globe, including Costa Rica, Morocco, New Zealand, West Indies, and everything in between. None of them guessed so we decided to show them!
Be transported to one of your closest neighbours through a series of 360 degree videos, where you can sip champagne in the Paris of the South; snorkel off the fine white sand beaches of the Isle of Pines and watch the cowboys, from the real Caledonian bush, fly over the Heart of Voh, and much more…
