He Manu Tīoriori

Traversing 100 years of Ngāti Kahungunu’s love affair with music, 'He Manu Tīoriori' features church and brass band influence through to parlour music, ragtime, jazz, rock and roll as well as country and western.
The exhibition at the MTG explores how Ngāti Kahungunu has been at the forefront of it all, from the Māori Jazz Orchestras of the 1920’s and 1930’s through to the emergence of the Māori Showband era of the 1960’s and 1970’s.
'He Manu Tīoriori' portrays a diversion from, and return to, traditional styles culminating with Te Matatini, hosted by Ngāti Kahungunu in February 2017.
