Kōrero: Ngā taonga puoro

Ko Richard Nunns rāua ko Hirini Melbourne

Nā Hirini Melbourne (matau) rāua ko Richard Nunns (mauī) i whakaora anō i te reo a ngā taonga puoro. I tū rāua ki ngā pō whakaaturanga maha o te taonga puoro. He tohunga tonu ngā titonga a Melbourne, o Ngāi Tūhoe, ā, nōna ngā pūmanawa ki te whakatangi i ngā momo taonga puoro katoa. Anei hoki a Nunns e whakatangi ana i te pūkāea.
