Lending Library Addition: “Rotorua International Maori Entertainers”

Hello all! I’ve added a new CD to my website lending library: “Rotorua International Maori Entertainers,” presented by Maureen and John Waaka. I was delighted to stumble upon it while out and about recently, because this is not the sort of album that’s easy to come across thousands upon thousands of kilometres away from where it was recorded.

The album features a number of traditional Maori songs and chants, including the haka, which has recently become well known outside of New Zealand. There’s also a recording of the stick game Tititorea, which I first learned about during my music education classes when I was doing my Bachelor of Music Education.

Students belonging to my studio, if you’re interested in hearing the recordings on my CD, let me know via email or during your lesson and I can check it out for you. Everyone else…may a copy of this album find its way to you!
