World Premiere.
Creative Director: Tama Waipara

Auckland Arts Festival celebrates the life and music of one of our great Māori musicians, Mahinaarangi Tocker. Of Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Tainui (Ngāti Maniapoto) Hebrew and Celtic descent, Mahinaarangi was a true one of a kind.

From folk to classical, Mahinaarangi wrote more than 1000 songs exploring identity and aroha which form a deeply compelling narrative of her own life experiences.

A champion for Māori music, gay rights and mental illness, her fearless approach to creativity is well respected among her musical contemporaries and globally acknowledged. Her live performances were characterised by energy, humour, and a vocal deftness that was rich and mellifluous.

For two nights, the Great Hall comes to life with an incredible line-up to celebrate the music and memory of Mahinaarangi. Directed by Tama Waipara and featuring artists including Anika Moa, Nadia Reid, Shona Laing, Moana Maniapoto, Annie Crummer, Don McGlashan, Emma Paki, Maree Sheehan, Charlotte Yates, Hinewehi Mohi and many more, this will be a night to remember.

“Music is an instrument I can use to find myself.” - Mahinārangi Tocker
