Concert in celebration of Matariki featuring NZTrio with guest artist Horomona Horo, in the stunning setting of Auckland Museum’s Te Ao Mārama South Atrium

Toru Whā breathes musical life into Māori mythology with compelling works by Gareth Farr, Richard Nunns and Victoria Kelly. These tales are interwoven with pieces by Dame Gillian Whitehead, Jeremy Mayall and Martin Lodge, and bound together by Horomona Horo with masterful call and response on taonga pūoro in celebration of Ka Rewa a Matariki – the Rise of Matariki.
