David Eggleton, the current Poet Laureate of Aotearoa 2019 - 2022, has been described by reviewers as a a jazz-bop-beatnik poet 'whose poems never cease to amaze and astound in their creativity ... in performance he is no longer just a poet but a ranter, a raver, a conjuror ... his poetry spirals into today's world from a Polynesian heritage'. Daren Kamali was a co-founder of the South Auckland Poets' Collective in 2008, an organisation aimed at encouraging young Pacific poets to tell their stories. An accomplished performance poet, as well as a musician, Daren Kamali has travelled the world presenting poems based on Polynesian and Pasifika legends and his own life story. Daren has a Master of Creative Writing with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland (2017). He has released two albums of his poetry set to music using a mix of traditional and rock music instruments. Richard Wallis is a Dunedin-based classical guitarist. As a soundscape musician he has worked extensively with David Eggleton in producing music and video recordings.
