“Yumi, Yumi, Yumi” (Bislama: “We, We, We”) is the national anthem of Vanuatu. It was written and composed by François Vincent Ayssav who was born in 1955 and adopted in by the citizens of Vanuatu in 1980.

The traditional music of Vanuatu is still thriving in the rural areas of Vanuatu. Musical instruments consist mostly of idiophones: drums of various shape and size, slit gongs, stamping tubes, as well as rattles, among others. Another musical genre that has become widely popular during the 20th century in all areas of Vanuatu, is known as string band music. It combines guitars, ukulele, and popular songs.
