Music correspondent Dave Wilson joins Kathryn to talk about the moment the harp, as a music instrument, has been having over the past several years. It's one of the oldest instruments in the world and yet it's still being innovated. It's long been part of the sound of hip hop, and has a home in jazz, R&B, myriad folk music and more.

Dave Wilson is musician, composer, and ethnomusicologist, a senior lecturer at the New Zealand School of Music at Victoria University of Wellington
