PRX Review: Tell Me Wai

by David Swatling for PRX (November 8, 2006)

More than just a music profile, this piece about a group fusing traditional and modern sounds raises lots of issues regarding culture and heritage. The sound at the start sets the scene in some far off exotic locale, but the young voices bring us into the here and now – well, here being New Zealand. The crossover to today’s hip-hop sound in an indiginous language is fascinating. This is perfect for any culture show or program dealing in global topics – or anywhere else one might want to treat listeners to a short but surprising trip to the South Seas.
