My year of travelling up and down Te Ika o Maui / The North Island is drawing to a close and I am yet to see where I will be drawn to settle for 2018. It’s been an amazing year of learning for me as I have been on the journey of discovering Te Reo Maori / Maori Language, and finding people and places where I can use this beautiful language, thoughts and ideas in my day to day life.
I will be travelling to Australia for the New Years Period to play with Matiu Te Yuki in his band My Golden Soul at Woodford Festival. I’ll also be playing and offering Creativity&Music ‘taster workshops’ at Voices of Sacred Earth Festival in Auckland in March.
I look forward to hearing from you : email email@example.com or text 021 946 399.
