    Feel free to choose additional Taonga pūoro instruments.

    Adding improvising flute is an option as well.

    The 6 sound sections are each approximately 1,5 minutes resulting in a total 9 minutes. All sections can be prolonged or shortened.

  • Technical specs: 

    The sound track can be sent as a wav-file as well.
    Also as 6 individual tracks without fading.
