On the last day of Auckland Arts Festival, revel in the uniquely Aotearoa artform that is kapa haka, with performances from four of our finest Māori cultural groups. 

Kapa haka is an avenue to express and showcase heritage and cultural identity through song and dance, and a way to celebrate who and where we are in the world. The concept of legacy and mātauranga tuku iho – knowledge handed down through generations – is powerful as we remember those who have come before us.

Pūmanawa brings together four brilliant kapa haka who embody the idea of legacy, talent and dedication to a centuries-old way of celebration. Join Te Rōpū Manutaki, Te Iti Kahurangi, Tūwhitia kia Angitu and 2019 Te Matatini winners Ngā Tūmanako as they sing and haka with full voices, fierce wairua and boundless energy.

Hosted by Wī and Wā of Taringa Huruhuru.
