Recently I had the pleasure of helping the Nelson band Minuit with an image order from our library. Their request was a stunning portrait of Ngaio Marsh for their new music video titled “Aotearoa“. The video is filled with New Zealand images (in their credits they thank “the awesome librarians at our national libraries and archives” for their help). With powerful imagery old and new they have managed to create a patchwork of New Zealand history and modern life. If New Zealand made it’s own home video, I imagine it would look something like this. The band informed me that they had 10,000 views in the first 5 days making it the #1 most viewed music clip in New Zealand that week. So, have a watch and keep supporting New Zealand music.
