Modern Maori Quartet Hit NZ Roads This September To October

Off the back of the upcoming release of their debut original album 'That's Us' (out on 15 September), contemporary showband Modern Maori Quartet will be hitting NZ roads this September through to October. The massive 19-date tour will see the award-winning band trail the country's highways and byways to take their music to the people of Aotearoa.

With the beloved Annie Crummer in tow, the band will kick off the journey in Putaruru then will make their way to Hamilton, Nelson, Blenheim, Christchurch, Dunedin, Porangahau, Featherston, Otaki and Napier. Meanwhile, they will open October with a show in Whanganui followed by performances in Rotorua, New Plymouth, Wellington, Taupo, Kaikohe, Whangarei and Auckland. The tour will wrap up in Whakatane.

Matu Ngaropo (Performer & Music Dramaturg) says: "The tour will be about taking our music to the people and returning it to our roots. We want to inspire a new generation of garage parties and fuel those special gatherings with new, honest, hearty waiata to add to the classic playlist. These will be songs that the heartland of Aotearoa can sing along to. As a team committed to carrying the mantle of this kaupapa we aim to share a new and current sound of Māori showbands and show people that real music, our music, is alive and thriving."

Fran Kora (Performer) adds: “The Past, present and future, with Aroha and truth as the main ingredients.”
