Laya Project's musicians are the people of coastal and surrounding communities in the 2004 tsunami affected regions of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives,Myanmar and India.

The production is based on regional folk music traditions, recorded and brought back to the studio to create a composition that mixes and enhances the original recordings, and embarks on a visual and musical journey crossing borders, while preserving the music of the people.

Some of these performances are rare, and are documented for the first time in this production. For the international team who
came together for this production, Laya Project is a personal and
collective tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, and is dedicated to the survivors of the 26th December 2004 Asian tsunami.

Laya Project has won the Founder's Choice Award for Best Film @ New York Intl. Independent F.F. 2007, the Best Film Award @ Byron Bay F.F. 2008, the Audience Award @ Imaginaria F.F. 2008 in Italy, and the Special Juror's Choice Award at the Zanzibar Intl. F.F. 2008 in Tanzania

The film is also being broadcast worldwide on National Geographic Channel and was screened at WOMEX 2008
