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.
This workshop has been specifically designed by Matiu Te Huki to help participants connect more deeply with their internal warrior, leader, speaker and their ancestors.
Matiu has over 20 years experience as a Maori language and performance teacher, he is a playwrite, musician, facilitator and leader amongst his own communities.
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. This workshop also delves into the realms of the dance between the divine masculine and the divine feminine.
Matiu's approach is welcoming, inspiring, fun and empowering.
