The world stares at New Zealand as the Rugby World Cup begins on September 9th. The All Blacks try again to win a trophy they miss since the first edition of the Cup in 1987. But Aotearoa ('The Long White Cloud', New Zealand in Māori) is not only a great country for rugby, it's also a great country for music, especially its first-class electronica-reggae-dub scene located in Wellington (Trinity Roots, Fat Freddy's Drop, The Yoots, Benny Tones, The Black Seeds...). Funny-and-folk duo Flight Of The Conchords is famous worldwide with its HBO series, while the NZ diaspora is represented by young psychedelic-pop Connan Mockasin and The Bamboos' producer and guitarist Lance Ferguson (Lanu). Lanu's grandfather (Bill Wolfgramm, an hawaiian-style guitarist) became the first NZ musician to release a vinyl-format album in New Zealand in the 50's. Here is a fine selection that captures the essence of the smooth, inspired, original and peaceful kiwi music.
