KTK31: HAKAS IN HI-FI

Ladies & gentlemens...

Our crew hope you enjoyed the stay in the Antilles. Today, we arrive in New Zealand and guess what? It seems like we're not the first to arrive here. About 650 years ago, the Maori people arrived here after a long boat trip, all the way from the Hawaiian islands (while some others prefered to stay in Tahiti or other south Pacific islands).


Even if the Te Aute Maori Club are nice people they welcome us today with some powerfull (yet scary) Haka war dances and agressive loud vocals. HAKAS IN HI-FI (Viking records VE61 from the mid 60's) is a good way to start our journey in new Zealand's traditionnal and folk music with probably the most famous traditionnal dance worldwide because of the famous All Blacks rugby players who keep their traditions of glorious Maori warriors.

On this trip, we'll mostly get some Viking records productions. They did a pretty good job to promote the polynesian and maori cultures since the late 50's with a serious amount of editions and re-editions (of Tahitian records) in New Zeland and Australia. We'll get some traditionnal games songs, some very sweet folk songs and we'll also visit a local church to enjoy some women choir... A great program for the next few weeks!
