Come together and let your voices soar throughout Tāmaki Makaurau to mark the start of the Festival – three weeks of uplifting arts, culture, celebration and kotahitanga/unity.
Join Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei as they lead us in launching the 2021 Festival with karakia and ceremony.
Sing along with Pere Wihongi and Maaka Pohatu to Māori songs that you grew up with – ‘Pō Karekare Ana’, ‘Tūtira Mai Ngā Iwi’, ‘E Pāpā Waiari’ and many more!
