This resultant collection features Goldenhorse, Hinemoana Baker, Graham Brazier, Whirimako Black, Dean Hapeta, Don McGlashan, Hone Hurihanganui, Strawpeople, Dallas Tamaira, Mahinirangi Tocker, Wai, and of course Charlotte herself. As well as being among the top ten of New Zealand’s greatest living artists, Hone was one the of first Maori poets to have work published in English, plus he was named “Icon Artist of the Year 2003” by the Arts Foundation. Charlotte’s previous project was putting the venerable James K Baxter’s work to music. Featured artists: Goldenhorse – Oh Africa, Strawpeople – Covetous, Dallas Tamaira – We, Who Live In Darkness, Don McGlashan – Rain, Hinemoana Baker – Where Shall I Wander, Charlotte Yates – Mad, Whirimako Black – Spring Song, Te Kupu – Speak To Me, Brother, Graham Brazier – Friend, Wai – On A Theme By Tone Taiapa, Hone Hurihanganui – Papa-tu-a-nuku, Mahinarangi Tocker and NZTrio – A Northland Heartscape
