Bonus Activity: Musical Festivals – Matatini
In New Zealand, a huge festival is held every two years, called Te Matatini. This performing arts festival celebrates the tikanga (culture or customs) of Māori. Kapa Haka groups from around New Zealand are invited to attend the festival and each group gives a 25-minute performance. The performances are judged and the best teams win prizes.
The gold medal winning team from this year (2017) was Te Kapa Haka o Whāngārā Mai Tawhiti.
Watch these three clips from previous Te Matatini festivals.
