Voices New Zealand

Voices New Zealand combine repertoire spanning ten centuries from opposite sides of the globe with the ancient sounds of Māori music played on traditional instruments.

As part of their 20th anniversary European tour Voices New Zealand bring a themed programme of music to London, 'Voices of Aotearoa', reflecting both Pacific and western choral repertoire, combined with the ancient sounds of Māori music played on traditional instruments.
