Sound Archives: Kapa Haka

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:37 pm on 22 February 2017

Earlier today at McLean Park in Hawke's Bay a pōwhiri was held welcoming 47 teams and an estimated 20,000 fans to Te Matatini, the biggest kapa haka show on earth.

For the next four days the top exponents of Māori performing arts will be on show and so Sarah Johnston has been delving back into the sound archives at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision for some kapa haka classics from years gone by.

Information about this years event can be found here with a livestream on Radio Kahungunu of Te Matatini.
