- Tuwhare - Poems by Hone Tuwhare set to music by recording artists from New Zealand Aotearoa
- CD - NZ recordings - other genres
A compilation of lyrics by Hone Tuwhare, one of the country’s most loved poets, set to music by twelve of New Zealand leading solo artists and performing groups.
The power of Tuwhare’s poetry to communicate to many becomes obvious, and this is represented by the diversity of performers on this album, from comparatively new groups such as Goldenhorse to local legends like Graham Brazier. Directed by Charlotte Yates, and supporte by Toi Maori Aotearoa, this album builds upon the success of Baxter – a selection of James K. Baxter’s verses set to music, released in 2000.
