Puoro Music AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND
Tararua (meaning ‘two peaks’), connects whakapapa, from mountains in both North and South Islands. The evocative music of Ruby Solly, Ariana Tikao, Alistair Fraser, and Phil Boniface combines taonga pūoro, waiata, karakia and pūrākau (story) with a strong southern Māori influence, with the western instrumental elements of the cello and double-bass.
Renowned soprano Anna Leese returns to curate this much-loved music series. This year with New Zealand artists and New Zealand compositions and arrangements in every programme, St Paul’s at One celebrates our own unique flavour of classical music in Aotearoa. Featuring a wide range of instrumentalists and vocalists, we are lucky to host many of Aotearoa’s most outstanding and exciting musicians in their fields. We represent opera, classical guitar, a chamber orchestra, a vocal ensemble, and Tararua, an exciting ensemble of Western and traditional Māori instrumentalists, who craft waiata, karakia, and pūrākau to tell uniquely Southern stories.
