Aro | He Manu Anō Tauranga Release Show

Sep 11 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $20

Presented by: The Incubator Creative Hub

In a celebration of Aotearoa’s wildlife, the tales and melodies of our native birds will be translated into unique storytelling waiata by musical duo Aro.

He Manu Anō and is an extension of their bilingual debut album Manu (2019), which told the tales of 10 native manu, playing on the birds characteristics and some of their significance for Māori – through a mixture of vocals, Māori rhythms, chants and instrumentation. The EP will consist of songs of the most requested birds that did not appear on their first album, and will be entirely in te reo Māori.

Aro are delighted to have had the support of Creative New Zealand for the making of this project!

Aro consists of husband and wife duo Charles (Ngāpuhi) and Emily Looker. The pair share a passion for the power of language and music to tell stories and remind us of our cultural identity. Aro blends Emily’s honey-voiced jazz with Charles’ full throated percussive sound with shades of haka. The duo were finalists for the Maioha Award at the Silver Scrolls (2019) and the APRA Best Children’s Song Award for their song Korimako (2020).
