Join us on Friday July 2 at the Civic Theatre in Auckland and witness te mana o te wāhine nō Aotearoa through song and performance in celebration of Matariki.
For many, Matariki is a time to gather together and remember those who have gone before, and the legacy they leave. TUAWAHINE will honour the country’s korokoro tūī who have carved a path helping to create one of the most vibrant and diverse musical communities in the world. It also seeks to shine a light on some of our beloved contemporary artists with household names, performing alongside exciting new and emerging acts.
TUAWAHINE is a celebration of Matariki and the power of wāhine toa. A live music experience featuring a who’s who of iconic and up-and-coming female artists from across the cultural spectrum.
Presenting a spellbinding mix of reimagined classics, original songs, and waiata Māori with the backing of a stellar band, TUAWAHINE is an unmissable event in Auckland Live’s Cabaret Festival programme and an opportunity to reflect on where we are as a community and where we are headed in the future.
TUAWAHINE is part of the 2021 Auckland Live Cabaret Season, taking over The Civic from June 19 – July 4.
