It started with a bang and it’s set to provide non-stop action all week.

Te Maeva Nui 2015 action gains full momentum this week after a boisterous and exciting start on Saturday with performances ranging from Aotearoa Maori haka to the outstanding dancing of teams from Aitutaki, Puaikura, Mitiaro and Pukapuka. The high energy action saw the audience forget the chilly temperatures as they warmed to some of the best Te Maeva Nui performances seen in the entire history of the annual event.

Last Saturday also saw the inaugural Junior Tangi Kaara (drumming) competition in which the youngsters from Aitutaki were crowned the kings in the battle of the beats.

Look out for magical moments from the performances at the National Auditorium, in Cook Islands News throughout this week.
