The songs of New Zealand’s Maori tradition are a living art form and an abundant source of knowledge about tribal history and culture. An introduction to the classic collection first compiled in the 1920s by politician Sir Apirana Ngata, this volume not only outlines the origins and history of the first publication but also celebrates the power and meaning of Maori song. Written in both English and Maori, it discusses the music’s styles and roles, the methods of composition, and the poetry itself as well as the cultural content. Filled with illustrations, this enlightening book is a perfect entry point for students, teachers, scholars, and singers interested in learning about and passing on the rich and vibrant Maori customs.
