Some years ago now, I was oh so fortunate to be awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship to research and record indigenous and imported singing, songs and dances in in the Pacific Islands of Samoa, Tonga, and Rarotonga. I donated my recordings to the University of Auckland.
Experience a Samoan 'Alleluia' below. It is very different!
Talking of wives“A wife is never ex-wife” says Avio. “She may loan you to someone else while she does other things – buys shoes or a house or maybe even a dachshund - but you are still hers. Till you die.”

Great sound, great timing and an enthusiastic conductor. Can we see something like this from you, Lynn, when you are next conducting the choir?Posted: 2022-03-23 16:22 by Paul S

Yes,Lynn. Such infectious energy and delight!Posted: 2022-02-15 11:45 by Terry
The enthusiasm of the 'teacher' and the delightful singing of the students was wonderful. Amazing how, with just a few claps, the chatter stopped and the attention was all directed to their leader. An interesting way to conduct!!Posted: 2022-02-13 15:26 by Natalie
I loved the joyous way the young people engaged with the music and their teacher was amazing.
Thanks for this, it made my day!Posted: 2022-02-13 08:06 by Helen
