Maori musician's drive to attract young talent to Otago

From Māpuna, 12:42 pm on 25 November 2023

Musician David Harrison is keen to attract more young Maori to Otago University's School of Performing Arts where he's a teaching fellow and mentor to emerging talent. But he says the school has an outreach committee to try to lure more Maori students to the deep south. David Harrison says modern Maori music is in a good place but he feels that popularity on social media to gain exposure means some talent is being overlooked.
