A 2CD set from Atoll showcasing the 2007 Asia Pacific Festival, with more than 150min of musical performance from the festival - held in Wellington over 9 days in 2007 - which brought together composers & musicians from Asia, the Pacific & beyond, in a celebration of music & lively cultural exchange.

With leading NZ performers such as the NZSO, NZ Youth Choir, NZ Trio & new music ensembles STROMA & 175 East alongside the crème de la crème of Asian performers, Aurora Australis is a faithful & exhaustive document of this exciting festival, which has been running since it began in Hong Kong in 1973. Highlights include leading exponents on traditional Asian instruments, the Contemporary Music Ensemble Korea, Piris & Mark Eliyahu (Israel) & little known puppetry traditions from Thailand, Indonesia & elsewhere.

New music specialists include experimental vocalist Koichi Magikami (Japan), conductor Zsolt Nagy (Hungary) & percussionist Arnold Marinissen (The Netherlands).
