Music plays a key role in forming the identity and telling the stories of a city. We express ourselves through music, and in turn that music expresses who we are.
For Māori, music is a divine gift passed down by the gods. It is embedded in traditional ceremony and preserves stories of the past. These stories live on today, woven into our culture and city.
As time passes, our stories will mix with the songs and sounds of the future. Creating a new chorus and adding to the ever-evolving story of this place, Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland.
