Pāuaball is spinning and the mic is ready for you to sing your heart out to Māori karaoke tunes. Five Māori artists have made a karaoke video for five Māori songs, inviting you to sing along in a bespoke karaoke booth.

In the same way as a waiata supports a speaker, these new moving image works tautoko the musicians’ advocacy for te reo and mātauranga Māori. Karaoke allows you the audience to bring your own connection to a song, and we welcome you to add your personal flair, inflection and dance moves to the performance.
