To reflect the plight of New Zealand musicians in London during lockdown, Julien Van Mellaerts has organised and curated Whānau: Voices of Aotearoa, Far from home, a selection of New Zealand, Māori and Pasifika songs. Recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall last month and now available to watch on YouTube, the project was devised to help those artists able neither to return home nor to work during the pandemic. Those featured additionally include Marlena Devoe. The concert can also be heard on Radio New Zealand Concert. You can also hear an interview with Julien Van Mellaerts as he reflects on his own experience during the pandemic.
