Music Feature: Great duos with Godfrey de Grut

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:19 pm on 27 March 2018

Throughout music history there have been many duos that worked so well they have become known more as the sum rather than the parts. 

Last week it was feuds - this week we're going the opposite direction for our music feature.

University of Auckland's Godfrey de Grut knows a thing or two about great duos. He's worked with artists ranging from Che Fu and Hollie Smith to even doing a keyboard session with Kanye West. Godfrey brings his list of great duos to discuss with Jesse.

The duos include Steely Dan's Donald Fagan and Walter Becker, a husband and wife Disney songwriting combination and the pair behind a Julie Andrews' The Sound of Music classic.
