HE PUORO, HE PŪRĀKAU - An Instrumental Story

A workshop with artist Horomona Horo where students experience storytelling, music, and an opportunity to observe traditional Māori musical instruments up close.

Step into the world of Taonga Puoro, traditional Māori musical instruments of Aotearoa. Join Master Instrumentalist Horomona Horo as he guides you on a storytelling journey. Using taonga puoro fashioned from natural materials – bone, wood, stone, clay, the stories will interweave cultural connection with the environment and genealogies. Musical dialogue will re-connect, revitalise and re-tell ancient stories with a modern flow. Following on from Ihirangaranga, come along to hear and see where story connects to vibrations.
