7:00 WOMAD Taranaki 2015

Thirteen programmes of live performances from artists recorded at the Festival held in New Plymouth last March

(8) Trinity Roots' afternoon 'picnic' concert shapeshifted between gently undulating grooves, soul-baring anthems, and full on psyche-rock jams. But at the core was the dynamic of three players who seemed to operate on a level of musical telepathy. From the tail of the fish to the tip, Aotearoa has been swept up in the music of Trinity Roots, a boil-up of ingredients that seemed to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea, and serve as an invocation to that same environment (RNZ)
