What’s On? Taonga puoro workshop

A workshop on traditional Maori instruments is being held in the Historic Village today.

Good morning, SunLive readers, and welcome to what is going to be a wet Sunday.

The MetService has us down for ‘rain becoming persistent morning, heavy at times’.

There will also be a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, although the high is forecast to be a balmy 25 degrees.

Although outdoor activities are probably inadvisable, there are still things to do indoors. One of those things is Jo’el Komene’s taonga puoro workshop being held at The Artery in the Historic Village, 17th Avenue, Tauranga from 12.30-5pm.

The workshop will introduce attendees to taonga puoro (traditional Maori musical instruments). Participants will learn about the instrument names, gods, guardians and genealogy associated with the numerous instruments, construction techniques and protocols surrounding their appropriate use embellished with demonstrations.

Attendees will also make two taonga puoro and learn how to play them. For more information, visit The Incubator website.

This evening entertainment options include an Elvis Presley tribute show at the Tauranga Citizens Club from 5-8pm, with tickets only $15. The final night of Tauranga Open Air Theatre’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ has moved to the Mount Maunganui College Hall, allowing for extra tickets to be released. The performance starts at 7.30pm, with tickets available from ticketdirect.co.nz.
