Tui, who was born in France and raised in New Zealand, has spent several years in Bulgaria, of all places, soaking up the local folk music. The result is her new album, Fly.
Here she is performing three songs at the Radio 13 Studio... two with electric guitar and one with a Tambura... an Indian instrument favoured in Bulgaria. Tui Mamaki also sits down to talk with Marty Duda about herself and her music.
