A tribute to the ocean is at the heart of Moana Maniapoto’s concert My Name is Moana.

The show celebrates through music, myth and anecdote New Zealanders’ relationship to the ocean.

My Name is Moana includes garage party classics as well as the songs that have taken the arts laureate and Taite Award winner and her musicians across 30 countries.

“We have travelled to some of the most exotic places on the planet,” says Maniapoto.

“But the Arts on Tour 2017 journey around our own beautiful country was an absolute privilege. It was a reminder too of the passion people have for reclaiming the health of our waterways.”

Some fans took their own guitars and ukuleles to Maniapoto’s 2017 shows and joined in. People at her show at Te-Poho-o-Rawiri-Marae on Sunday are invited to do the same.

As well as musical fans, Maniapoto will be joined by her sister Trina, Paddy Free (Pitch Black) and Cadzow Cossar.
