Kia kore ai e ngaro

00:00 / 03:26

Duration: 3:25

Completed: 2019

Instrumentation: treeophone, kōauau ponga ihu, the sounds of trees rubbing together and wekas at night on Tiritiri Matangi. 

Programme Note: 'Kia kore ai e ngaro' is the fourth line from my favourite karakia 'Tīmatanga'. Translation into English is a little tricky, but one interpretation might read 'to prevent it from being lost.'
