The song ‘Satu Pulau, Satu Suara’ is a collaborative effort from some of Indonesia and the world’s top musicians, singers, music industry and media to promote through music the ‘Bye Bye Plastic Bags’ initiative; a campaign spearheaded by school students Melati and Isabel Wijsen to eliminate the use of plastic bags on the island of Bali.

Melati and Isabel have spent the last 5 years campaigning to rid Bali of plastic bag usage, educating its people of plastic wastage issues and reducing the epidemic that is affecting its environment, eco-system, wildlife and tourism trade.

Inspired by their vision and persistence, Australian expat and singer-songwriter Athron composed the song ‘Satu Pulau, Satu Suara’ (One island, One Voice) as a gift to promote the campaign through music. With a push from Sophie Digby and the Yak Magazine, Athron began pulling together a huge line up of local talent to bring the song to life in the studio.

An incredible team of creatives gathered, donating their efforts into the production aspect of the project with studio time, engineering and mastering. Erik Est also joined the team, giving the song extra impact with his production of a music video, filming all those involved. At the same time, renowned artists Michael Franti, Ras Muhamad, Endah and Rhesa and Rebecca Reijman were also enthused to join and collaborate on the video.

As instruments and voices were being recorded, Melati and Isabel continued their efforts, speaking at major conferences around the world regarding environmental education, in turn, motivating well known figures such as American actor Adrien Grenier and Director of the United Nations Environment Programme, Erik Solheim to also be involved with guest appearances in the video.

The song is available for download with a donation of choice to the ‘Bye Bye Plastic Bags’ foundation.
