Koauau have been made and played for generations by Māori and have a very interesting history. They were typically made from wood or bone and were usually worn as a necklace by people of status within a tribe. Sometimes the bone used would be from a family member or a warrior from an enemy tribe and those were said to have the sweetest sound. 

These modern Koauau are designed to produce a very sweet sound while being an eye-catching accessory. The flexibility of these koauau allow you to play modern songs as well as traditional ones. Start learning today and see what you can come up with.

    WHAT THEY LOVE

    Igniting passion and appreciation in our community

    I purchased 2 flash card readers for my nieces. One for my niece in Australia to help her and her dad learn how to pronounce our beautiful reo. I’m so impressed with the clear pronunciation and will be purchasing another for our own whare as our Pēpi. Fast postage and great communication online. Look forward to making future purchases
