Rob Thorne (Ngati Tumutumu) is stopping by the Auricle on his Aotearoa New Zealand tour to perform music from his Rattle debut album, Whāia te Māramatanga. Rob will also hold an afternoon workshop on taonga pūoro, the traditional Māori instruments that he uses in his music practice.
“Whāia Te Māramatanga is a musical passage of identity and connection. It is a journey of knowledge through action and practice, reclaiming the past for a stronger future. It is a work in which ancestor and descendant are reacquainted, where ancient practices and their sounds are not just revisited, but actively reborn and reworked. As past and future become one in the present, time dissolves in a transcendental celebration of unity”.
Rob Thorne, 2014
Performance from 8pm with Stanier Black-Five & Zeug Gezeugt
$10 at the door (all proceeds to the artists)
