Kakapo

There is a Legendary bird that resides on a cluster of Islands in the South Pacific. The Kakapo seems to defy many of the so called rules we apes have used to categorise our feathered friends.

Sadly, as is our want, we as a species have endangered the Kakapo to near extinction. Even sadder is the fact that there are many more animals on the that endangered list.

We chose to dedicate this collection of music to this specific bird because of its mating song.
The Kakapo emits a sound that wouldn't be out of place in contemporary human music.[Listen out for the kick drum style sound in the opening minutes of this mix.]

We at Culture Cuts have an affinity with all living creatures, and feel duty bound to at least attempt to raise awareness regarding the plight of some our co-Earthlings.

There are excerpts from 'South Pacific' and 'Last chance to see'. In this cloud. Thanks to them for that.

I am from New Zealand and want to show my appreciation to you for dedicating a mix to a very special unique bird. The heaviest parrot in the world, due to its weight it spends most of its time on the forest floor, as do a lot of our birds in New Zealand as it was a predator free country till man brought over rats, ferrets, stouts, cats and Dogs. It would be a real shame to see these birds dissapear due to the acts of man just as the bird that we ate to extinction "The Moa", another lost wonder of the world. Nice chilled mix, just how us Kiwi's love it. Cheers

Due to licensing issues in your country it is not possible to seek backwards. Why is this?
