Nau Mai E Kā Hua
Sebastian J. Lowe
This video is for the title track ‘Nau Mai e Kā Hua', which is the name of the first duo album by Ariana Tikao (Kāi Tahu) and Al Fraser, two leading players of ngā taonga puoro. Water in te Ao Māori signifies life and identity. Ariana and Al both grew up in Te Wai Pounamu and are now Wellington-based. Their music is inspired by ancestral kōrero and the natural world.
