Haere Ra E Hine

This Traditional Maori Poi Song is wonderful for:

  • Preparing, teaching and practising the melodic element 'lor' (flattened 'la').
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'tie' with the last 4 bars of the song.
  • Singing with boys whose voices are breaking - the limited range of a 5th is more accessible than songs with a wide melodic range.
  • Singing songs from other cultures.
  • Teaching chromatic passing notes.
