To celebrate Matariki, Te Whanau a Apanui/Ngāti Porou singer-songwriter and APRA Maioha award-winner Rob Ruha is embarking on Matariki on the Move, a traveling concert series that will visit marae and community halls. For the shows, Ruha reworks his own waiata with the help of Black Quartet, in a fusion of Maori and classical music.
Their first stop on Matariki on the Move was Te Mahurehure Marae, Auckland – Radio New Zealand’s Andre Upston was there to capture a musical meeting of worlds.
