Several members of the Bindii group were interviewed by Radio Adelaide recently. The interview will be broadcast on Radio Adelaide 101.50 FM on Tues 25 January at 3.30 pm (half hour program).
The program will also be broadcast on the Internet from the Radio Adelaide Web Sitehttp://radio.adelaide.edu.au/listenonline/
It is a streaming broadcast, so if you are located in the Eastern States it will be broadcast at 3 pm local time.
We were interviewed about the origin of the various Japanese forms, mainly tanka, renga /renku and haiku. We read some translations of the masters Basho, Buson, Issa and Shiki. We also read a selection of tanka and haiku written by group members and a collaborative renku composed by three Bindii members.
