The Matariki Cultural Foundation has become a member
of the global network for Indigenous music.
We support music sometimes called folk music or roots music of any
culture that is created and played by indigenous musicians.
We have created good relationships with Piranha Arts (Berlin) and
Outward Sounds (NZ) and other groups to broker opportunities for
Maori and Pacific musicans, composers, agents and song writers
to particpate in this World Music Expo (WOMEX).
As coordinators of the World Music Pan Indigenous Network
it has provided connections to other Indigenous communities,
providing a space for debate, collaboration, and a
place for Maori and Pacific language music
to be booked and showcased to world festivals.
