Wiri Donna Performs 'Dream Of Me' - UTR Trash Recital

We're thrilled to share the second episode of UTR presents Trash Recital Season 3 — starring Wiri Donna, produced by Sports Team and made with support from NZ On Air!

Sports Team have shaken up the universally beloved Trash Recital format for 2023 — making like a modern day Selwyn Toogood in It's In The Bag, where the bag is now the only option! For Trash Recital Season 3 special guests from throughout Aotearoa are invited to select a MYSTERY BAG and make musical magic from whatsoever they find within.

Our new episode stars Wiri Donna aka Bianca 'Yank' Bailey, 2023 Auckland Live Best Independent Debut Award finalist for her six song Being Alone EP. Joined in the Trash Zone by bantering bandmate James MacEwan, Bailey reflected on her musical journey so far whilst reinventing her SRN chart-topping hit 'Dream Of Me' using a grab bag of recycled bits and bobs — including a drill, ever-popular saw, toy saxophone and a big cardboard tube.

For each episode of Trash Recital we've invited some of our favourite Aotearoa artists into the UTR studios to perform one of their songs, re-created using everyday items selected from Sports Team's stockpile of recycled junk. Trash Recital not only provides a launchpad for stunning reimaginings of recent (and soon to be) classic tunes, but also the perfect opportunity for a chinwag with our local musical heroes.
