Leweton

The Leweton Cultural Group hail from the remote northern tropical islands of Vanuatu and they travel the world performing the Na Mao and Nelang dances as a prelude to the mystical water music, dressed in their traditional costumes of Gaua and Mere Lava made from flowers and leaves, coconuts and pandanus. Their performance is truly mesmerizing as they reimagine the old with contemporary expressions of Matto - bringing together traditional beats and rhythms with ukelele-led melodies and soaring vocal harmonies. The Leweton Cultural Group will also facilitate traditional weaving, cooking, percussion, and storytelling workshops.
