Whāia Te Māramatanga is a musical passage of identity and connection. A journey of knowledge through action and practice, reclaiming the past for a stronger future, while joining the two in a place that is here, and a time that is now. A re-acquaintance of ancestor with descendent. These ancient practices and their sounds are not just revisited, they are actively reborn, reworked, and reunited with a living approach to the potential of the sound they produce. Acoustic energies that encourage, empower, enliven and entertain. Powerful, magical, intentional. As past and future become one in the present, time dissolves in a transcendental celebration of unity. All are one. Now.
