We follow the process of “getting the band back together” as artistic director, arranger and leader Rim D Paul and friends re-form the Aotearoa National Maori Choir, Te Roopu Waiata Maori o Aotearoa. After a ten-year break, the choir draws together around 80 singers from across the whenua to collaborate with instrumental band The Yoots on a special commission – to perform on the main stage at WOMAD Taranaki 2013.

11:06 The Shed – A Whole New World of Music
Award-winning former British broadcaster Mark Coles presents his pick of the best new music releases and demos from around the planet.
This week: Wet tents and midnight mice men. The Shed has been on tour this week... a canvas version pitched precariously in a field at Britain's big WOMAD music festival bringing you interviews and performance from backstage. Join The Malawi Mouse Boys, Ed Harcourt, Flavia Coelho, Joseph Arthur, David Wax Museum and myself for a sing-song in the rain. A bit of Brazilian sunshine too.
