Literally meaning 'The Woven Mat Of Sound', Te Ku Te Whe presents new compositions performed only on the traditional instruments of Maori, producing a passionate and spiritual album. Over a period of 25 years the instruments have been found in museums, on marae, and recovered from the memories of old people.
In keeping with Maori spirituality the music on Te Ku Te Whe takes the listener into an ancient world, structured by mythology, history, and the moods of nature. The sound and images have been chosen to evoke the closeness of Maori music to the land, the sea and the wind.
“This achieves the aims that the new ambient producers merely grasp for - here the music is truly the sound of the land. Fifteen tracks that need to be heard from beginning to end, a journey from birth to death, a spiritual embrace. A moving experience.
Te Ku Te Whe is a wonderful testimony to the dedication .. brought to the lost voices of the Maori world - an outstanding success for all those involved. My congratulations.
