The Performance

After the welcome ceremony, you will be entertained by a kapaha performance (Māori dance performance).  You will have the opportunity to hear and watch traditional and contemporary songs and dances.

After World War 2 many of our Māori men who volunteered to serve their country in the great war brought back elements of European life including musical instruments (the guitar).  The introduction of the guitar into Māori society began the composition of Māori waiata (music/songs) mixed with popular main stream music.  The guitar is now cemented in all kapahaka performances throughout New Zealand and has played a key role in revitalising Māori culture.

Our performance also includes an interactive element where guests are welcome to learn the poi (female) and the famous haka (male).  At the conclusion of the performance some oue of our performance will remain behind for photos - this is that opportunity to get that selfie having a great evening with out team here at Ko Tāne (NZ)
