APO Aspiring Musician takes part in Ethno New Zealand artistic residency

In 2021 one of our Aspiring Musicians, Zosia Herlihy-O’Brien, took part in the Ethno New Zealand artistic residency. This is a residency of traditional/folk/world music that gathers young musicians – singers and instrumentalists – from Aotearoa and the rest of the world for 10 intense days of friendship, sharing, and lots of music and dance.

Being part of Ethno was such an inspiring experience, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  I went into it with a completely open mind, not knowing what to expect, and was met with an incredible amount of music, culture, and aroha.  Many friendships were made, and stories shared, and many of us all regularly meet up when we’re in the same part of NZ (outside of lockdowns of course!).  I am immensely grateful to the APO for supporting me to enjoy this wonderful opportunity.
