14th Annual Waiata Māori Music Awards – On Māori Television And On Demand!

Māori Television game show presenter Luke Bird of LUCKY DIP fame and radio personality and MC extraordinaire Kiino Krystal Edwards, will host the 14TH ANNUAL WAIATA MĀORI MUSIC AWARDS to be streamed on MĀORI+ and māoritelevision.com on Saturday 9 October 2021 at 7.00 PM.

The Awards promise to be a who’s who of Waiata Māori Music, with performances by Waiata Māori Music Awards Ambassadors Maisey Rika, Tipene Harmer, Amba Holly, taonga pūoro practitioner Horomona Horo, Ainslie Allen, I.A, 5 Minutes of Fame winner Perēri King, Sianne, the Tuari Brothers and a finale performance by New Zealand music royalty, Stan Walker.

Executive Director of Waiata Māori Music Awards, Ellison Huata says the Awards were specifically created to acknowledge and honour the keepers, teachers, promoters, creators and performers of Māori music, and to continue to develop and promote the diversity of all Māori music.

“It’s disappointing that, for the second year in a row, we cannot celebrate this night together, but regardless, we are still going to showcase and celebrate the excellence of Māori music and recognise the unique vision of Māori composers and musicians.”

“This is the biggest night in the Māori music calendar.”

The Waiata Māori Music Awards were established in 2007 to recognise, develop, encourage and honour the best of traditional and contemporary musical compositions and performances annually.

Award winners are selected by members of the Māori music industry.

There are 15 award categories recognising song writing, best song, best album, best solo and group, best video, emerging artist, among others. There are two award that specifically recognise contributions to Māori music.
