Today's First Song is performed by a well traveled award winning band who release their long-awaited debut album today.  They have toured the UK and Europe and have recently played dates in Hawaii, Singapore and Malaysia.  The Modern Maori Quartet follow in a similar suave contemporary vein to some of their forebears such as The Māori Volcanics, Quin Tikis and Howard Morrison Quartet.
