Putting a spin on modern and classic numbers, these talented performers are taking their music to the people and returning it to their roots.
This acclaimed show has been described as a party like no other, where hearty voices in epic harmony share Maori traditions and tell New Zealand stories through waiata and cheeky Maori humour.
“We want to inspire a new generation of Maori garage parties globally and fuel those special gatherings with new, honest, hearty songs (waiata) to add to the classic play list.
“We aim to share a new and current sound of Maori showbands with our cousins and neighbours in Australia and show the world that Kiwi music – our music – is alive and thriving,” said performer and creative director James Tito.
“We are looking forward to performing at HOTA on the Gold Coast.”
HOTA CEO Criena Gehrke is confident that the Modern Maori Quartet will draw a huge crowd.
“Deemed the ‘Maori Ratpack’, these guys have universal appeal and have been receiving 4 and 5 Star reviews from festivals all over the world.
“There’s a very strong community of Kiwis on the Gold Coast and we hope that many of them will join the guys for a fabulous night of fun,” Criena said.
For the past 18 months, the Modern Maori Quartet have been travelling the world and have delivered over 200+ performances in 70+ cities across 8 countries with very positive reviews.
Modern Maori Quartet will be at HOTA for one night only on Saturday 6 October. Tickets start from $30. For more information and to book tickets visit the HOTA website.
