About Alistair Fraser
Of Katimana and Kati Pakeha, Alistair was born in Dunedin, now lives in Wellington, and specializes in building, performing and teaching taongo puoro. In 2006, he won 2nd place at the Te Puia National Concerto Taonga Puoro Competition.
He also plays guitar, and works with his trio Coaster, as well as playing taongo puoro with ensemble Tahu, and the Jess Chambers Project. The other two members of Tahu, Henare Walmsley and Mike Hogan, kindly agreed to support my CD launch at Happy in Wellington in 2008 - some images from that performance can be found here.
