E porotiti ana te pōro-pāua. Kua rite te hopuoro. Ki te hoe! E rima ngā whitiāhua karaoke mō ngā waiata a te Māori i whakaritea e ngā ringa toi Māori e rima, ā, kei te karangahia koe ki te waiata.

E whakatewhatewha ana tēnei tūtoi i ngā pūrākau, i ngā waiata, i ngā mahi whakangahau. Nā te kaha o ngā kaiwaiata ki te whakatairanga i te reo Māori me ōna tikanga i roto i ā rātou waiata ka tautoko ake ēnei whitiāhua i tā ngā kaiwaiata e whakapāho atu nei. I roto mai i te karaoke e wātea ana koe ki te whakaū i ōu anō āhuatanga, tōu reo whakarawe, āu kani whakarawe ki tō whakangahau.

Pāua ball is spinning and the mic is ready for you! Five Māori artists have made karaoke videos for five Māori songs, inviting you to sing your heart out in this bespoke karaoke booth.

This project uses karaoke to explore oral history, waiata and performance. With Māori musicians advocating for te reo and communicating te ao Māori concepts through their songs, these moving image works are a tautoko to the musicians, picking up and continuing to share their messages and ideas. Karaoke allows you as the singer to bring your own connection to a song, adding some personal flair and sweet dance moves to the performance.
