Found In Translation

Found In Translation

Sometimes the songs we fall in love with are not the songs their writers intended. And while the language of music may be universal, our interpretations can be deeply personal.

Three of Aotearoa’s award-winning songwriters, Julia Deans, Mel Parsons and Bella Kalolo, come together to share and celebrate the stories and true meanings of their songs.

In this intimate, powerful, and bound-to-be humorous show, Julia, Mel and Bella explore how songwriters translate their experiences, thoughts and feelings into songs that listeners then re-interpret as their own.

Found in Translation is a coming together to share and celebrate the stories behind the true meanings of these kiwi wahine’s songs.

All three are known for their frank humour & honesty - and are genuine crack-ups, so this is gonna be funny as and will probably make you cry too!
