11:06 Womad Taranaki 2013 - Jimmy Cliff (Jamaica), and the Aotearoa National Maori Choir
Over three days in March 2013, the Womad Festival brought a rich mix of musical and cultural flavours from around the globe to Taranaki. Radio NZ National was on hand to record the performances and talk to the performers.
Tonight, the Aotearoa National Maori Choir reformed especially for Womad, and is accompanied by Wellington band The Yoots. The choir involved around 80 singers who came together from across the whenua to celebrate the true spirit of Waiata to a wildly enthusiastic audience. Also in this programme is Jimmy Cliff, one of the living originals of Jamaican reggae. Cliff‘s widely anticipated show proved that, even in his mid 60s, his charismatic stage presence and rich back catalogue of hits recorded over 5 decades are still as relevant as ever.
