Sound artist Kingsley Spargo is a renowned musical polymath based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

Working across mediums, he has collaborated with poet Courtney Sina Meredith, dance company Black Grace (Guerilla Collection), composer Eve de Castro Robinson, and his pūmoana can even be heard on the Dalai Lama’s album Inner World. He has delighted audiences alongside Don McGlashan, Tim Finn, Violent Femmes, SJD, Eve de Castro Robinson, and of course the inimitable Witi Ihimaera with whom he shares the stage at WORD Christchurch.
