Paper Cranes 折り鶴 weave their stories into captivating and dynamic live performances, using a diverse range of instruments (shakuhachi, ukulele, mandolin, ocarina, harmonica, accordion), in songs that move between delicacy and outright abandon.
Husband-and-wife team Fraser and Naomi Browne are the driving force behind the group, and the music is influenced by Fraser’s background in literature and Naomi’s Japanese upbringing.
The band released their debut EP ‘Oh, Love!’ in September 2012, and their album ‘The Road Home’
in March, 2015. The Road Home was warmly received and charted in New Zealand, and they’re
hard at work on a follow-up album.
