Māori Music in our libraries

Not only do we have a great selection of recordings of traditional Māori music in our libraries but we produce a guide to the best resources in our collections and online. Christchurch City Council has their own waiata group which celebrates at special occasions around our libraries. Here they are at Christmas time at Central Tuam Library last year singing carols in Māori. During NZ Music Month you can catch the Shirley Primary School kapa haka group at Shirley Library on Thursday May 16 at 1.30pm.
