TRAC Wales: Danny Kilbride (Director)
TRAC encourages participation in the music, song and dance traditions of Wales – across the country, in both languages and by people of all ages and abilities
In March 2019 Danny Kilbride visited Aotearoa to create the first footprint of a cultural exchange between our nations. His journey took him to WOMADNZ in Taranaki. He came North to Tai Tokerau to participate in the first Indigi Jam Fest in Whangarei. Then to Tamaki (Auckland) to play music at Waiheke Island with the foundations directors George Te Aroha Kahi and Posenai Mavaega.
The second footprint was created by Hinurewa te Hau long with Emere Wano (Festival Director of WOMADNZ) and her husband Wharehoka Wano.
It is here at Eisteddfod Genedlaethol, Llanrwst that two culturres continued sharing different ideas, traditions, and knowledge. What we learned was, though we are different, as a celtic nation they too suffered colonisation - the tradition of music keeps there cultural activism and language alive today.
