about

A unique collaboration between classical, jazz, and pre-European Maori instrumental styles, Gillian Whitehead's Ipu can only have been created in New Zealand.

An ipu is a gourd, a container for carrying food and goods. Accordingly, ipu korero denotes a storyteller, someone who ‘carries’ stories. The ipu is also employed as a musical instrument. This album is also an ipu, a vessel from which flows the unique and evocative musical threads of two cultures, Maori and Pakeha.
