The Rising • "A disappearing nation"

Since we began with the ”101 Flames of Inspiration” initiative, we have co-created music with more than a hundred artists from all corners of the world. So, when something happens in a remote place, we often know a friend there who is impacted.

The first nation that will disappear due to rising sea levels, is the Republic of Kiribati (pronounced ”Kiribas”)  Kiribati consists of 33 islands that are located on the equator, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

It seems like a paradox that the impact of melting ice is so dramatic in Kiribati, because these islands couldn’t be farther away from the melting poles. Yet the impact is obvious to everyone there.

Arthur Kenneth wrote this song which he performs with his vocal group and we invited more 12 more musicians from other corners of the world to join.
