Experience two magical evenings featuring the power and passion of kapa haka and the lyrical beauty of choral music. Held in collaboration with Te Matatini, each concert promises a mesmerizing start with captivating performances from Auckland's renowned kapa haka groups.

Concert One | 12 July 

Kicking off the evening is Te Waka Huia, the legendary five-time champions of Te Matatini's national competition. Established in 1981 by Ngāpō and Pīmia Wehi, Te Waka Huia embodies the essence of Māori culture in an urban context.

Following them is the Paduan Suara Mahasiswa (Student Choir) from Hasanuddin University in Makassar, South Sulawesi. Adorned in traditional attire, this Indonesian choir weaves traditional stories through their mesmerizing performances.

Concert Two | 18 July

The second evening opens with Ngā Tūmanako, the esteemed overall winners of the 2019 Te Matatini festival. Founded to uphold the cultural aspirations of Hoani Waititi Marae, Ngā Tūmanako is deeply rooted in Māori language and culture.

The spotlight then shifts to the New Zealand Youth Choir, under the direction of David Squire. With a legacy spanning back to 1979, the NZYC boasts a stellar lineup of alumni and promises an evening of superb singing and diverse repertoire.
