Butterflies Radio IndieViews Artist Spotlight, featuring The Paper Cranes - 8/5/13
The Paper Cranes are a six person folk band from Auckland, New Zealand. I interviewed Fraser and Naomi, who started The Paper Cranes as a duo before it evolved into the full band. Their 8 month old son dropped in for the interview and Naomi, who grew up in Japan, was sweet enough to play the Shakuhachi (Japanese flute) during the interview. I learned a lot about Japanese and New Zealand culture and music during the show.
I think you will find their folk music dreamy and relaxing and you will be hypnotized by the Shakuhachi.
