The Neville Brothers - Keepers of the Flame

Television (Full Length) – 1992

In 1992 Moana Maniapoto and the Moahunters enjoyed a first for a Kiwi group, taking their funky mix of Māori pop, poi and politics to New Orleans to perform at the city's annual Jazz and Heritage Festival. Their hosts were The Neville Brothers. The Grammy award-winning family group had visited Aotearoa in 1991 and forged a warm relationship with the South Auckland Māori community. This documentary follows the Moahunters and their whānau as they take in the culturally rich vibes of New Orleans. Politics and race issues are very much in the air  and in the music pouring out onto the streets of the city. 

I felt like I had been there before, you know? I just felt that I was a part of it.
– Singer Aaron Neville describes his time in Aotearoa
