  1. Herbs


Herbs visited sometimes-troubled town Ruatoria in 1987 bringing music and aroha, and leaving with a mini-documentary and this evocative music video. A beautiful video for a beautiful song (about beautiful people). Lee Tamahori, of Once Were Warriors fame, was co-director, and the clip won Best Music Video at the 1987 New Zealand Music Awards.
