World Premiere.

In this unique concert, twelve of New Zealand’s best contemporary recording artists come together for four very special nights to perform songs inspired by the rare and moving words of iconic Maori writer Witi Ihimaera. From Che Fu to Horomona Horo, Teremoana Rapley to SJD, amazing Kiwi musos create songs with lyrics by Ihimaera.

Setting his words in a wide range of styles, this concert showcases Ihimaera’s distinctive and powerful evocations of life in Aotearoa and the impressive diversity of New Zealand music.

In its fusion of great literature and outstanding musical talent, Ihimaera is a phenomenal feat of artistry. Narrated by star of Outrageous Fortune, Kirk Torrance, and produced by Charlotte Yates, the creator of Baxter (2000) and Tuwhare (2006), Ihimaera gives the author’s words an exciting new wardrobe of sound.

A special Auckland Arts Festival commission, Ihimaera receives its world-premiere in 2011. A CD of songs from the show is set to be released by Universal Music NZ in February 2011.

Artists featured include Lupin (Victoria Girling-Butcher), LA Mitchell, Unitone Hi Fi, Ruia Aperahama, Horomona Horo, Che Fu, Warren Maxwell, Ariana Tikao, The Twinks (Milan Borich and Tim Arnold ex-Pluto), SJD, Teremoana Rapley and Charlotte Yates.
