Journey into Taonga Puoro

An introduction into Taonga Puoro – Jerome’s story.

Oro Atua

Taonga Puoro (traditional Māori musical instruments) reflect the sound of our natural environment from the mountains, rivers and land to the sea. Our ancestors used these instruments in days gone by as tools to heal and promote a healthy body, mind and spirit. Taonga Puoro holds the vibration of the natural world and when played, this vibration resonates within us and helps us to reconnect to the intelligence and power of nature.
