TALOA: AN EXPLORATION OF MUSIC BY AMERICAN INDIAN AND MĀORI COMPOSERS

Join composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate for an adventure in American Indian and Māori music. TALOA— which takes its name from the Chickasaw word for song — is a series exploring fascinating connections in the music of contemporary Māori and American Indian composers. The creator of major symphonic and choral works heard at The Kennedy Center and recorded by the San Francisco Symphony, Tate is our guide as we discover powerful and evocative music by a diverse range of American Indian composers. Along the way, Tate leads us on an unforgettable journey to New Zealand, where we listen in to his on-the-ground musical encounters with leading Māori composers and performers.
