We here at Onespace HQ are really excited for the return tour of Matiu! With over 20 years experience as a Maori language and performance teacher, he is a playwrite, musician, facilitator and leader amongst his own communities. Matiu’s approach is welcoming, inspiring, fun and empowering.
Join us for an intimate concert with the incredible Matiu Te Huki from New Zealand. Maori musician, “The Hook” Te Huki is known for his amazing vocal skills and energy, his ability to powerfully connect with and lift a crowd with his mesmerising stage presence while fronting great bands or with his solid solo looping show.
As a singer songwriter, the soul stirring messages in Matiu’s music are positive, inspiring and unifying. Matiu’s soulful roots music has a strong Maori flavor, using haka, chants and traditional Maori instruments, backed by grabbing grooves, deep, beautifully crafted bass lines, funky rhythms and magical melodies that stay with you well after the show ends, all held up by a pillar of Pacific passion.
Matiu will also be hosting a workshop to help participants connect more deeply with their internal warrior, leader, speaker and their ancestors.
This interactive workshop will cover traditional Maori practices including the art of introduction, song, haka, sharing the breath of life, story and more. Participants will leave with ancient yet practical tools to support them in the way they stand, speak, listen, connect and move powerfully through life.
