Dudley Benson - Forest

From RNZ Music

Reworked songs by the late Maori composer, poet and author, Hirini Melbourne. With the exception of Taonga Puoro played by Hirini Melbourne collaborator Richard Nunns, all of the songs on 'Forest: Songs By Hirini Melbourne' have been reimagined with the human voice alone - including a capella ensemble The Dawn Chorus, beat boxer King Homeboy and 'Freak Folk' godmother, Vashti Bunyan.
