Troy Kingi with Delaney Davidson: Black Sea Golden Ladder

Troy Kingi with Delaney Davidson:  Black Sea Golden Ladder


Troy Kingi (Te Arawa, Ngāpuhi) has arrived at the halfway point of his 10 10 10 Series: ten albums, ten genres, ten years. Following on from his remarkable performance of The Ghost of Freddie César at the 2020 Hawke's Bay Arts Festival, Kingi now swaps out his soul styling for folk twang and twelve strings on Black Sea Golden Ladder.

Co-produced and performing with award-winning Ōtautahi folk/country stalwart Delaney Davidson, Kingi says "It is the most personal of all my albums – the first one I feel that is truly about me". Each track dives deep into a different part of life, from birth to death, with the lead single 'Call My Name' unearthing school day memories, written by Davidson, Kingi and Kingi's daughter.

This collaborative album was written and recorded as part of the Matairangi Mahi Toi Artist Residency in Wellington - a partnership between the Governor General and Massey University established in 2016 to encourage and promote the development of Māori and Pasifika visual arts and creative practices.

As part of a nationwide album tour, experience the magic created when these two artists come together live on stage for the 2022 Hawke's Bay Arts Festival Taster Series.
