Taonga Puoro

Taonga Pūoro

Taonga Pūoro are the traditional instruments of Māori.

Kia tere atu ngā kapua
Kia tīhore te rangi
Kia whiti te rā
Mā te hau ngā oro whakatangitangi o mua e kawe!

Let the clouds fly away,
Let the sky be clear,
Let the sun shine,
May the music of the past be carried on the wind!

I feel deeply fortunate to have been touched by this ancient tradition of wonderful music and would now like to give what knowledge I have about the taonga back to communities.
