One of New Zealand’s best known musicians, producers, and innovators, Tiki Taane (Ngāti Maniapoto) and multidisciplinary artist Kereama Taepa (Te Arawa, Te Āti Awa) have joined forces to merge their two worlds together to create a brand new performance experience – Mai Te Uira.
Vismaya – A Celebration of Indian Music and Dance
New Zealand’s premier Indian classical dance company, Mudra, will excite audiences with fast-moving dramatic pieces. Together with wondrously swift and rhythmic percussive footwork, the dancers convey complex emotion and philosophical thought through exquisite hand gestures, body movements, and facial expressions.
Hannah Darroch and Justin DeHart are dedicated to championing both new and classic pieces for flute and percussion. Known as engaging and highly-skilled musicians, their performances offer a dynamic up-close audience experience, introducing people to the versatility and colour of their many instrumental textures.
Award-winning musicians and collaborators Ariana Tikao (Kāi Tahu) and Bob Bickerton have joined forces to create Muriwai. The name refers to a confluence of two rivers, and their music is a convergence of Māori and Celtic musical traditions through Celtic harp, vocals, and taonga puoro.
