Mara TK - Taniwhunk
“Taniwhunk is a form of Maori music” A term coined in order to claim a small part of this vast musical universe for ourselves, lest we continually be labelled the borrower. The Maori of this generation exist in the most technologically advanced era yet. Thus we are afforded the potential to express our mana with ever-greater resources, definition and distribution.
The following prose (brose) may put that thought a little better:
Maori in Space
They used to call Canterbury, the food-baskets of Waitaha. Now the piggy bank is broken; it spills only a dehydrated muck; rations for this Maori in Space. My great grandfather was the last fisherman of our line to catch barracouta; out beyond the foreshore (for sure!)… Out in pure space.
His son was a Civil Engineer like Hone Tuwhare
- boilermakers they called themselves -
I call myself a Maori in Space…
