about

Rob Thorne (Ngati Tumutumu) is happy with the way Whaia Te Maramatanga weaves together many of his life's paths and passions as a musician, social anthropologist, a Maori and healing practitioner.

“With so many layers of feeling and meaning, the listener can choose how deeply they explore the music" says Rob. “It affects people in different ways, and I have noticed this in live audiences. Some are calmed, becoming very relaxed and even falling asleep, while others key into a more intense inner journey or spiritual experience.”

The legacy of Hirini Melbourne and Richard Nunns, solidified with the groundbreaking and highly influential Te Ku Te Whe (Rattle, 1994) continues through a new generation of taonga pūoro exponents, and few are as immersed in the practice or offer such originality of expression as Rob Thorne, an original new voice in the evolution of taonga pūoro with a sound born of commitment, knowledge, passion and humility.

“Where one might see Richard Nunns as a pioneer in bringing traditional Maori instruments back into public awareness, Rob Thorne is moving it forward creatively in new directions."
David Famularo
