Maori Music with James Holt: Part Tahi

World music enthusiasts will delight in this podcast installment on Maori music, featured in the 11-27-2020 Scout Report. Since then, the podcast has released additional episodes on Maori fishing and horticulture, among other subjects. The History of Aotearoa New Zealand Podcast shares stories of the islands, with a focus on "pre-European Tangata Whenua, the people of the land, also known as Maori." Episodes cover a range of topics, from horticulture to linguistics, and at the link above readers will find an episode on Maori music. This installment is part one of two with guest James Holt, a Maori music expert who wrote his dissertation on the unique aspects of the melodies. Holt discusses the music's history, ancestry, and characteristics, providing a comprehensive overview of Maori music. Both installments on Maori music (Episodes 43 and 44) are found on the Home page, as are dozens of other episodes. Readers will find Transcripts for select shows via the Menu. To further explore Maori music, check out the Sources page, which has a section on Taonga Puoro (Maori Musical Instruments). The podcast is listener-powered, supported by individuals who donate to the show's Patreon channel.
