Māori musicians including Tama Waipara, Maisey Rika, Ria Hall, Anna Coddington, Te Awanui Reeder and Warren Maxwell give their own twist to some of Hirini Melbourne's songs.

Māori musicians including Tama Waipara, Maisey Rika, Ria Hall, Anna Coddington, Te Awanui Reeder (Nesian Mystik) and Warren Maxwell are part of this new project which sees them
give their own twist to some of Hirini Melbourne's songs.

In the combining of traditional and contemporary instruments, each artists' interpretation will be different and correspond with their particular musical style. From soul to jazz, hip hop to traditional Maori.

Overseen by Hirini Melbourne's niece, Peata Melbourne, the album project He Rangi Paihuarere has been three years in the making, and it's a tribute to her remarkable uncle - a researcher, composer and expert in taonga puoro, traditional Māori instruments.
