Aro

Aro is husband and wife duo, Charles (Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Te Ata, Te Ati Awa) and Emily Looker.

The couple share a passion for the power of language and music to tell stories and remind us of our cultural identity. Aro was a finalist for the Maioha Award at the Silver Scrolls (2019) and the APRA Best Children’s Song Award for their song Korimako (2020).

"The musicianship throughout – haunting and interlocking vocals, stick percussion, evocations of taonga pūoro, touches of Latin rhythms – is clever and diverse"

– Graham Reid, Elsewhere, Manu album review
