The creative love-child of Prince Tui Teka and Flight of the Conchords, the Modern Māori Quartet brings back the nostalgic era of the Māori Volcanics, the Twin Tikis and many more from Māori showband’s golden age.

These four good looking, hip swaying and suave Māori guys bring the past into the present, they croon old and new school classics with a fresh ‘golden syrup on fried bread’ twist.

Maaka Pohatu, Matariki Whatarau, James Tito and Francis Kora are Toi Whakaari/NZ Drama School graduates who have established highly succesful careers in theatre, film and music. This is the new face of Māori show bands – handsome, hilarious and harmonious. You’d be mad to miss this one.

“The Modern Māori Quartet radiate good times. (Oh, to find yourself at a party with a couple of guitars and these guys belting out songs.) There’s no doubt this quartet can entertain with song and dance but this show delves deeper weaving heritage, language and history into its feel-good vibe.” – Metro
