Richard Nunns is a living authority on nga taonga puoro (Maori traditional musical instruments). He has been described as one of New Zealand’s most remarkable musicians.
His thorough and sensitive research has provided a wealth of information around the sounds, history and stories of these taonga, ensuring their preservation for future generations.
He has received national and international recognition as he takes the instruments into conversation, discussion and collaboration with different cultures and musical genres.
