Flowing Water CD
Recording of the full production of Flowing Water, a unique blend of kapa haka, opera, drama and music. Flowing Water tells the histories of Aotearoa New Zealand through key events that took place from the emerging of this land from the waters, to the arrival of Maori, the arrival of British, to ensuing achievements and conflicts, through to the present day.
Written by New Zealand literary giant, Wit Ihimaera, with additional libretto by acclaimed historian, Dr Tom Roa and music by one of our leading composers, Janet Jennings, this is an epic and significant work.
Comprising two CDs and over 90 minutes of music, the rich virtual orchestration accompanies the voices of leading and emerging Aotearoa vocalists with Voices New Zealand chamber choir and Tonga Puoro by Rangiria Hedley.
