Troy Kingi album preview - 'Black Sea, Golden Ladder'

Government House was lit up for the return of Matairangi Mahi Toi Artist in Residence Troy Kingi with a preview of his new album "Black Sea, Golden Ladder'.
Created during his residency at Government House, the album is a series of songs about the experiences we all share - birth, love, work, growing old and death.
Number five in Troy's 10-10-10 project of 10 albums in 10 genres in 10 years, 'Black Sea, Golden Ladder' heads off in a folky direction, with collaborator Delaney Davidson providing a touch of country. Special guest choir Ka Hao came onstage at the end, adding a beautiful vocal backdrop for the finale.
Thank you Troy, Delaney and friends for a great show. The album drops at the beginning of June.
