National Maori choir to reform for WOMAD

6:43 am on 15 March 2013

The Aotearoa Maori Choir is reforming for this weekend's World of Music, Arts and Dance (WOMAD) festival in New Plymouth.

The 80-strong group has been dormant for about 10 years, but will perform with New Zealand group The Yoots on Sunday evening.

About 300 musicians and artists from more than 20 countries perform at the three day event, which attracts more than 12,000 people each day.
