Listening Post

What better way is there to get to know WOSOSI, than to have a listen to some of our wide range of music.

We specialise in songs and chants from around the world, conveying each song’s intention and wairua - whether that is a quiet longing for your homeland, celebrating the joy of independence won, the despair of loved ones lost or the delicate beauty of a song of peace. This page contains a sample of our large repertoire.
 


Shut de door

We have fun with this song. While not a true traditional Caribbean song (it was actually written in 1982 by Randy Stonehill) it has a great catchy Calypso tune and we enjoy singing it as much as our audiences enjoy listening.


Kibo

A beautiful song of hope written by Earlene Rentz for Nathanael, Tomoko and Naiya Hill, and the beautiful, hopeful people of Japan who have endured such tragedy as a result of the March 11,2011 earthquake and tsunami. This performance was at the beautiful Futuna Chapel in Karori, Wellington.
