Ngā Kete Aronui

Ngā Kete Aronui is a holistic music workshop facilitated by Taipari Waaka at the Palmerston North kura “Tai Wānanga TŪ TOA”. Participants are given time during the school week to pursue their passions, and these class members all aspire to perform, compose and share original music. Ngā Kete Aronui contributed two waiata titled “Hopes & Dreams” and “I want it all”.  The group wanted to share the ambitious and drive of rangatahi Māori.  Their intention is to support other rangatahi who are struggling with anxiety or depression”.
