Fun for the whole family, this performance includes soul, haka and jazz to bring audiences of all ages together to discover the natural world around us.
Aro consists of husband and wife Charles (Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Te Ata, Ngāti Mutunga) and Emily Looker. Blending Emily's honey-voiced jazz with Charles' percussive sound with shades of haka, Aro's storytelling performance is a warmth of experience, wholly original, anchored in Aotearoa New Zealand, that leave all who are present with the feeling of having been let in on a special secret.
The pair share a passion for the power of language and using music to tell stories that remind us of our cultural identity. The duo were finalists for the Maioha Award at the Silver Scrolls (2019) and the APRA Best Children’s Song Award for their song Korimako (2020) and finalists for Best Māori Group at the Waiata Māori Music Awards 2022.
Suitable for all ages
