Bagarap Empires

Sent to the islands by the Australian Foreign Ministry, Iain Campbell Smith learned pidgin dialect and began writing songs, in both English and pidgin, from the stories of the people he worked with as they struggled to build trust and peace after a bitter war.

He became a celebrity on Bougainville Island collaborating with local musicians to release 20,000 copies of a ““Songs of Peace” cassette, and hosting a weekly program on the island’s only radio station.

The first edition of Bagarap Empires was released in Australia in 2002 and gained legendary status on the Australian festival scene. Smith has added 4 new songs for this North American release, all written last year on his final tour of duty in Bougainville.
