Following the recent Ngāti Raukawa recording and release of "Te Oriori o Raukawa", this episode discusses what an Oriori is, what they contain and the kaupapa within them. Being the composer of this Oriori, we are priveleged to be able to hear Paraone unpacking his composition process. To listen to the full 27 minute waiata, go here: https://bit.ly/3vkWKEV

Listen along as we kōrero in depth about a few of the items that were performed at the event.
Featuring the traditional story which was turned into an award winning childrens book, we are fortunate to have author Ben Ngaia join us to speak about the significance of this story and his work writing the book.

A muri ake i tētahi paku whakatā, ka hoki mai anō te wāhanga o Ngā Taonga. Ka hoki ki mua ki 1972 ki te Whetiwara Poronīhia tuatahi ki te whakarongo ki te āhua o te kapahaka o te wā me te kite i ngā kākano i whakatōngia i aua tau kua hua mai ai i ēnei tau. After a short hiatus, Ngā Taonga returns to our regularly scheduled programming. We go back in time to 1972 to the first Polynesian Festival to listen to the style of kapahaka of the time and to witness the seeds planted then that have since borne fruit in today.
Hoki mai ano ki te wahanga tuarua o tēnei punua raupapatanga ko Te Ao o te Touhunga. Ka noho mai a Tā Pou ki tō tātou whare o Ipurau ki te kōrero tonu mai mō tana whakatupuranga me ana wheako i mātau ai ia ki ngā mahi a te tohunga.
