Yesterday I was featured on Music 101 on Radio NZ about my recent trip to France. Kirsten Johnstone did a great job of putting the interview together, and it is available to listen to now here. (NB: Need to click on story to see links if viewing on homepage)
The piece talks about my music in general, my job at the Alexander Turnbull Library and how that feeds into my music, my experience of Te Putake (the Maori garden in Moselle, France) and then my experience of Brittany also.
I am very grateful to all of those who supported my time in France, especially to Jean-Noel Potin who organised my time in Brittany and to Juanito Fuentes and Lena Potin who accompanied me. You can hear one of the songs that Juanito “flamenco-ified” which worked brilliantly, he even wrote a chant in Spanish within my song Hoa Rakatira, which you will be able to hear included on the Radio NZ story.
Jean-Noel has just written a summary of my time in Brittany on his blog Canal Kiwi.
