One of the great things on Great Barrier is the amazing musical talent that crosses my path. Over the last few months I’ve had the pleasure of working with Elaine Ngawaka from Kawa Marae and her enthusiastic Kapa Haka group. The outcome will be a soundtrack for a promotional video for the Kapa Haka group’s visit to Spain.
Shortly I will also be recording some of Elaine’s original songs – hopefully accompanied by her husband Opo who plays a mean lead guitar part.
It has also been fun recording Waimarama (Wai) Knowles, a talented local singer songwriter. During our recent sessions we multi-tracked lead and backing vocals, guitar and percussion with Wai performing all the parts.
