Gig Information

Musical direction by Claire Cowan
Performed by Blackbird Ensemble with guest vocalists; Anna Coddington, Mara TK, and Priya Sami

Blackbird Ensemble, New Zealand’s most inventive and theatrical chamber orchestra, presents an awe-inspiring homage to the inimitable Icelandic pop artist Björk. In ‘All is Full of Love’, Blackbird Ensemble serves up an audio feast of Björk’s finest songs across the decades, reimagining her much-loved classics from Debut through to Medulla and Utopia.

After the debut Auckland season completely sold-out its run and a string of incredible concerts in the South Island earlier in the year, Blackbird Ensemble have added a collection of North Island dates this October. With their stunning homage to the music of Björk, All is Full of Love, will play for one night only in Hamilton (October 22).

Audiences have been spellbound by this stunning tribute to one of music’s most innovative artists, with New Zealand’s celebrated chamber orchestra transforming Björk’s iconic catalogue with their own unique flair. The 2019 line-up features a trio of incredibly talented kiwi vocalists – Anna Coddington, Mara TK and Priya Sami.

Blackbird Ensemble are some of Aotearoa’s most impressive musicians, coming together to play everything from traditional strings, brass, woodwind, keys and percussion to food packaging, whistles, and umbrellas to add foley and atmosphere to the reinvented arrangements. Claire Cowan has completely transformed the music of Björk with her musical direction, drawing from the genre-spanning nature of the popstar’s three-decade solo career.
