Mason Bay, Rakiura December 2011 - Update

I've completed my time at Mason Bay, Rakiura/Stewart Island and now Im busy editing sound recordings and tidying up loose ends.

Here are some of the instruments I made December 2011.

Putorino tutu rakau (kanohi (faces) based on pendant artifact found on Centre Island Fouveux Strait held in Otago Museum)

Panguru tutu rakau (with rata beater). Inspired by description in Traditional Lifeways of the Southern Maori : Beattie of southern instrument
