Purchased on Mighty Ape

Lots of amazing talent to listen to. used a couple of the songs for fashion shows in Auckland and America Samoa! woohoo!


Charlotte Yates was invited to oversee this ambitious project: setting Hone Tuwhare's poetry to music. This resultant collection features Goldenhorse, Hinemoana Baker, Graham Brazier, Whirimako Black, Dean Hapeta, Don McGlashan, Hone Hurihanganui, Strawpeople, Dallas Tamaira, Mahinirangi Tocker, Wai, and of course Charlotte herself.

As well as being among the top ten of New Zealand's greatest living artists, Hone was one the of first Maori poets to have work published in English, plus he was named "Icon Artist of the Year 2003" by the Arts Foundation. Charlotte's previous project was putting the venerable James K Baxter's work to music.

Perhaps not for everyone, but 'Tuwhare' will be nothing short of essential for some.
