MARLON WILLIAMS PERFORMT „MAKE WAY FOR LOVE” MIT DEN POU TIRIAO SINGERS | VIDEO JETZT ONLINE ANSCHAUEN

Heute zeigt der neuseeländische Singer/Songwriter MARLON WILLIAMS ein neues Live-Video seines Songs „Make Way for Love" zusammen mit den POU TIRIAO SINGERS unter der Regie von Tim McInnes.
Die Neuinterpretation des Titeltracks von WILLIAMS' zweiter LP, die im Februar über Dead Oceans veröffentlicht wurde, hat einen sanfteren Sound; hier ist es nur WILLIAMS' einsamer Gesang, eine Akustikgitarre und der anschwellende Background-Gesang des Chores (bestehend aus Raewyn Hodge, Zion Tauamiti, Nikora Nitro, Elishia Manihera, Vai Punivai, Isla Martin, Adonai Schwenke, Tuhekeao Williams, Hora Nicholas und Biancha Biddle).

Über diese neue Aufnahmeerfahrung sagt MARLON WILLIAMS:
„From the genesis of this song’s journey, it gently but surely revealed its form to be a Maori waiata. The strum, the sentiment, the mauri. Lamentably, everything but the reo. So when the idea of doing a unique performance was brought to me by Amazon, I got straight on the blower to my pal Zion Tauamiti. I knew Zion was running a Maori and Pacifica youth community choir in East Christchurch, an area absolutely put through the wringer and hung out to dry in post Earthquake Canturbury. Zion was super keen to have the choir involved. We got together for one rehearsal and the strength of the unified sound was overwhelming. They treated me like one of the crew and when it came time to pool some money for petrol to get home and I reached for my wallet, Zion turned to me and told me in no uncertain terms to stay out of it; I was manuhiri and that was that.
As we all know, in this world, terrible things happen to the best of people. Recently, Zion suffered a cardiac arrest after a routine surgery and was left in a coma for 6 days. Being the lion of a man that he is, Zion woke up and is now, thankfully, in the process of recovery. This video and the beautiful people gathered in it are a testament to Zion’s limitless energy, compassion and pure love for his people. To The Pou Tiriao, Zion and anyone watching, my deepest thanks. E hoa ma, ina te ora o te tangata.”
