How The Solomon Islands Shaped Anna Smyrk’s EP on Banana Lounge Broadcasting
Alt-folk singer/songwriter Anna Smyrk joins Banana Lounge Broadcasting to chat about her new single ‘Benjamin’ and forthcoming EP. Anna wrote her latest collection of songs whilst working on community projects in different countries including Cambodia, the Solomon Islands and the Philippians. Her music has an emotional-folk feel and her latest single was inspired by her time on a very remote part of the Solomon Islands. When she was feeling overwhelmed and was not able to connect with the place, the village elder, Benjamin, was able to teach her about the island and help her find her feet. Anna will be launching her EP this weekend at the Meri Creek Tavern and will be incorporating songs from different language groups in the Solomon Islands into her set.
