Animated Film and Music Album 'Songs of the Earth' Set to Premiere at COP26
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Songs of the Earth, developed and directed by multi-disciplinary artist, musician, and EARTHDAY.ORG Ambassador Soumik Datta in partnership with EARTHDAY.ORG, is set to premiere at the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26 on November 2, 2021. The animated film is accompanied by an eight-track album responding to climate change, weaving issues from climate migration, extreme weather to ocean pollution, deforestation and sustainable fashion through original narrative, songs and immersive visuals. The British Council’s Creative Commissions programme, which commissioned a series of creative projects to explore climate change through art, science, and digital technology, supported Songs of the Earth.
The 24 minutes-long film follows Asha, a young climate refugee from Bengal, as she searches for her missing father through the flood banks of the Sundarban delta, burning forests and melting polar ice caps. It also addresses the carbon impact of the fashion industry and the plight of climate migrants. The film is a dedication to the Global South and those who have been displaced by environmental crises and natural disasters.
Rooted in conversations with a panel of climate consultants and our associates in India, the film and album bring together animators and musicians from the UK and India. The film will be previewed at the UK Prime Minister’s office at No 10 Downing Street and Royal Albert Hall in London and premiere at COP26 in Glasgow. Featuring a suite of original climate anthems written and composed by Soumik, including ‘Oceans Rising’ and ‘Fields of Hope’, the lyrics carry profound environmental messages that embody conscious activism. These songs will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all major streaming platforms on November 2, 2021.
