Top NZ Names On New Parihaka CD

Tim Finn and Herbs, Hone Tuwhare, Patea Maori and Anthony Ritchie are among the contributors to a powerful and evocative tribute to Parihaka: a CD called Parihaka: The Art of Passive Resistance.

The CD has been produced by Trust Records and City Gallery Wellington to commemorate the Parihaka exhibition. It features music inspired by the story of Parihaka, and extracts from the poems commissioned by the Gallery for the exhibition, read by the poets themselves.

"The Parihaka CD is a unique soundscape of words and music," says Lloyd Morrison, of the Morrison Music Trust. "It adds an audiovisual dimension to the exhibition."

Stand-out tracks include the Tim Finn-Herbs collaboration 'Parihaka' and the stunningly evocative 'Offering for Parihaka' by David Hamilton, which combines the sounds of Maori instruments with a string orchestra.

"We were delighted that leading New Zealand musicians and composers were so keen to be involved in this project," says Paula Savage, director of City Gallery Wellington. "As with the artists in the exhibition, Parihaka held great significance for them. The CD is another celebration of the ongoing artistic legacy of Parihaka to the people of New Zealand."

The CD is accompanied by a booklet featuring background on the works, and illustrations of artworks in the exhibition. It can be sampled and purchased at City Gallery Wellington, and from music stores and www.trustcds.com priced at $34.95. It will also be available at the special price of $24.50 if purchased at the Gallery along with the Parihaka catalogue (total price $94.45). The catalogue (Parihaka: The Art of Passive Resistance) will be launched in January 2001 and will also be available in bookshops. The CD has been produced by Trust Records, in association with City Gallery Wellington.

Generously supported by The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Radio New Zealand.
