The documentary shoot in the Solomon Islands is part of project that Olivier Cheneval founded called The Sound Alliance.
"The Sound Alliance is a non-profit organization that provides communities throughout the world with the equipment and training to record, preserve and promote their traditional music."
In the summer of 2012, Cheneval and co-director Dax Hickson traveled to the Solomon Islands and filmed the Waru Nonoasi Bamboo Orchestra as the group recorded their premier album and performed on stage at the largest festival in the nation's history.
