Notes

Many taoka pūoro (musical instruments of the NZ Māori) lie silent in museum collections throughout Aotearoa and the world and have not been played for the decades if not centuries since they were first collected. The voices of the taoka tāwhito (ancient treasures) in these composition are from taoka pūoro that reside in the collection of Okain’s Bay Māori and Colonial Museum, Banks Peninsula.
