Powerspot Playlist 27 June 07

On the show tonight, it's very much a Polynesian flavor. Since it's been raining for far too long here in Sydney, and my spirit has gotten slightly damp, the best I can do to keep sane is escape into the sunny, joyously harmonious sounds of our pacific neighbors. Hope some of you can join me either via the radio or streaming via the net.

Next week, an interview with Peter Freeman, sound designer, producer and long time bass player for Jon Hassell. I caught up with him on a recent trip to Sydney.

Musical contributions from

Te Vaka- CD Tutuki & Nukutehe

The selections focus on the rich variety of authentic himene (hymns) indigenous to Tahiti, the Cook Islands, the Society Islands, the Australian Islands, Manihiki, Pukapuka, Maupiti, Tahaa, Bora Bora, and Raivavae.
