Te Torohu

The Atua sang the world into existence. The worlds are separated to allow the light of Te Ao Mārama through. The kōauau is played from the beginning to the end, from conception to the afterlife. The sounds cloak our whenua and herald the potential - Robin

The music starts with wind sounds from the pūtōrino and the grinding of stones, each representative of Rangi and Papa. The darkness is broken by the kōauau which intervenes to create light for Te Ao Mārama - Bob
