Saltwata follows the brother and sister – children of Ron and Natalie Daise, from popular 1990s Nickelodeon TV show “Gullah Gullah Island”. Chronicling their generation of Gullah Geechee, together they face the challenges of finding an identity when you are born within a culture, that is within a culture, that is within a culture. The film also explores how music, as a creative vehicle, can evolve and modernize a culture – a journey that takes them from South Carolina to Sierra Leone and back. Is there a new, contemporary sound that can represent the Gullah Geechee?
