Rob Thorne (taonga puoro & composition)
Richard Nunns (purerehua on Waharoa & Gateway)
A musical passage of identity and connection, Whaia te Maramatanga is the Rattle debut of a new and original voice in the evolving journey of te taonga puoro. Rob Thorne’s deeply-felt album is a concentrated conversation between the past and the present, a personal exploration of the spiritual and healing qualities of an ancient practice.
These ancient practices and their sounds are not just revisited, they are actively reborn, reworked, and reunited with a living approach to the potential of the sound they produce. Acoustic energies that encourage, empower, enliven and entertain.
