“He tata ā runga, he roa ā raro!”

Established in 2006, from the powerhouse of kapa haka that is Waihīrere Māori Culture Club, Tū Te Manawa Maurea has brought their style of traditional and contemporary blends back to the 2014 Tamararo stage to contest for a representative spot at Te Matatini in the new year.

Based in Manutūkē, a small settlement just out of Gisborne, Tū Te Manawa Maurea placed third equal at the Te Matatini held in Rotorua, their highest national placing to date.

Today they shone just as bright, here is their whakaeke.
