“Herbs: Songs of Freedom is a fantastic achievement. This is a funny, elegiac, moving, necessary and quietly triumphant film. It may just be my new favourite New Zealand music doco ever.” (Graeme Tuckett, Stuff).
“With Ihumātao at the front of our minds, there could scarcely be a better time for a documentary on these Aotearoa music icons … jump at this chance to enjoy a deeply personal documentary and celebrate music that’s stood the test of time.” (Steve Newall, Radio NZ).

By supporting this event you are supporting the children of Nelson Intermediate Kapa Haka in their mission to compete in the National Primary School Kapa Haka competition in Hamilton.
The Nelson Intermediate kapa haka is called ‘Te Pītau Whakarei’. Last year, for the first time in ten years, they competed in the regional trials. They did so well that they won a place in the national competition which takes place in November.
We are all excited about this success and are working very hard to raise funds to take the group to Hamilton. This is a fantastic opportunity for the tamariki and for the growth of kapa haka and Māori culture in our region
