Sixty traditional Maori songs of Tuhoe sung by Kino Hughes are presented in this book and CD collection. The text of each song is given in both English and Maori along with a musical transcription. Kino Hughes was an outstanding singer, orator, and respected Kaumatua who, determined to preserve for future generations all the songs he knew, asked these authors to compile this magnificent record. The introduction includes information on Kino Hughes, on the people of the Tuhoe Maori tribe, on the song categories used, and on the music. This important record of Maori music includes photographs, a glossary, notes on the texts, transcriptions, and an index of song types.
