The songs and tunes seem timeless, yet thoroughly modern. As we travel from country to country, the world seems a little better, more decent and a little more human"

Laya Project, an award winning 68-minute music documentary is a musical journey through communities in the 2004 tsunami-affected regions of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar and India.
This production is based on regional folk music traditions, recorded and brought back to the studio to create a composition that mixes and arranges the original recordings and embarks on a musical journey crossing borders, while preserving the music of the people.
Some of these performances are rare, and are documented for the first time in this production. For the international team who came together for this production, Laya Project is a personal and collective tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, and is dedicated to the survivors of the 26th December 2004 Asian tsunami.
Laya Project the film continues to be screened at festivals across the world.
