Hone Tuwhare

Hone Tuwhare (1922-- ), is New Zealand's most distinguished Maori poet writing in English, and also a playwright and author of short fiction.
This clip - produced by Laka Rolls - takes us to his house at Kaka Point in the deep south of the South Island and his astonishment (and joy) at hearing his words put to music by some of New Zealand's finest contemporary musicians.
