The best way to learn a language is through song. For one special night only, join the finest singers in Aotearoa as they turn up the volume, open their kete and share the joy and aroha of music and te reo Māori.
For the centrepiece event of Auckland Arts Festival and part of the Festival's Toitū Te Reo, strand we've brought together a line-up of New Zealand's top musicians, including Stan Walker, Annie Crummer, Hinewehi Mohi, Moana Maniapoto, Maisey Rika, Rob Ruha, Tami Neilson, Seth Haapu, Maimoa, Whirimako Black, and many more.
Celebrate our Māori language with an unforgettable evening of stars, songs and sing-along.
