COOK ISLANDS @ THE BIG BANG NZFA 2014
In Feb 2014 Motone Productions took 12 stellar Cook Island drummers to Wellington to be a part of the NZFA THE BIG BANG opening event. The twist is that the drummers ranged in age from 6 to 18 years old and were selected by Murray Hickman of Strike Percussion when he came to Rarotonga to be the very first Creative Artist in Residence run by Motone Productions. These kids are talented! The opportunity to perform in this production extended their whole perception on what is possible with the arts and music. We raised the 25K to complete this project thought the wonders of local fundraising in the Cook Islands and the fabulous BOOSTED site where our overseas supporter could donate.
Motone works to promote development of the Creative talents of Cook Islanders and this project shone!
