IN SONG

 

Gospel. Bluegrass. Traditional Samoan and Egyptian Music. Travel across the globe to meet stars on their home turf as they perform the songs that inspired their careers in a new video series that shines a light on the musical origins of opera’s greatest performers. 

 

For our next installment of the In Song series, we travel to New Zealand with Tenor Pene Pati to explore the intersection of opera and traditional Samoan music. Pene reveals, in this deeply personal story, how family and Samoan culture have influenced his music.
