After the repatriation seminar, we will be moving on to the newly opened Bramall Music Building.
Maori elders will be giving a presentation about
traditional Maori waiata (chants and songs)
musical instruments including the putatara (conch shell trumpet),
koauau and Nguru (two types of Maori flutes).
They will play the instruments and also sing examples of their waiata (chants and songs), which will form part of a formal handover ceremony of ancient Maori remains the following day.
This informal presentation will be a must for anyone interested in ancient forms of music, traditional native cultures and the richness of diverse inheritance. Come along to hear and meet our Maori guests.
