  • Te Kū Te Whē - Hirini Melbourne and Richard Nunns

CD

In 1994 Hirini Melbourne and Richard Nunns walked into a recording studio to make an album that marked the culmination of 30 years of travel, research, korero, composing and performing. The resulting CD, Te Ku Te Whe has since gone on to become pivotal to the rediscovery of sounds and practices of the taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments). In 2002 it was awarded a Gold Disc by RIANZ, the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand. Tracks from the recording have been used widely in film and TV including ‘Whalerider’ and in the cartoon ‘Bro’ Town’.
