Tahiti’s Terrific Toa’Ura

We end our week enjoying Tahitian music and dance with by meeting Toa’Ura (“Red Warriors,”) a multifaceted Tahitian ensemble that fuses traditional Polynesian percussion and melodies with contemporary Western instruments and song structures. To get a sense of how this works -–and it works very well — you can watch many Toa’Ura videos on YouTube, such as in this video from a live performance, dancers and all. Cheers!
