Opening gig dbc 20219/20 season


Al Fraser – ngā taonga pūoro
Phil Boniface – double bass

Muscial meditations… nature of Aotearoa.
Al Fraser, a leading performer of Maori musical
instruments, reunites with Phil Boniface, a kiwi
jazz bass player back from a decade in North
America. They first collaborated twenty
years ago while studying jazz performance
at Massey University. Pongurusonorous,
resonant, deep-toned, gruff –  their first Rattle
Records album presents an array of originals,
plus a cover of  ‘Pūrerehua’ by Drs Hirini
Melbourne & Richard Nunns…  brings together
the many sounds of ngā taonga pūoro and the
low sounds of the double bass in an exploration
of timbre, space, melody and shared musical
language. A soundscape for contemplation.
A beautiful, uplifting performance to share
with family & friends, a most appropriate
opening for dbc’s tenth concert season.

Friday, October 4
Show starts 8pm

Open 7pm, hang out, dbc annual sign up
