The SOUNZ Podcasts  

SOUNZ podcasts covers a range of topics that relate to the music of Aotearoa New Zealand.  Join our hosts as they explore issues and interests that are pertinent to our music today including classical music, Māori music, jazz, sonic art and the music of the Moana Pacific peoples.

Ese Aumalesulu is a Samoan-born kiwi who owns & manages a recording studio called TeJit Records, as well as a member of The Four Fathers, a band made up of low-vision musicians.

Ese talks to us about his journey as a vision-impaired tagata sa’ilimālō (pacific disabled person), starting from his village in Samoa to his life in Aotearoa, including all the bells and whistles that he encountered, discovered & overcame along the way.
