Korikori ~ Luelue mai ~ Busy Bodies celebrates our South Pacific identity. The music provides three activity options...

1) Movement and Fitness.
The music is designed to facilitate a balanced range of movements. The warm-down is a creative dance piece on the theme of birds.
Teachers: though instructions are given during the music, space is provided to add your own.

2) Learning Māori.
Many children learn better through movement. Hook into the movements in your own language then find out how easy it is to learn as you move with the same music in a new language.

3) Music Appreciation
Young children learn by doing. Songs in this programme teach musical concepts like pitch, beat, rests, and time signatures, through 'moving with the music'.

"It's a pretty cool recording, with a drum's 'n' bass groove underpinning the lyrics, that goes well beyond the usual simple tunes and basic rhythms of kids' music. Well worth checking out if you like your music a bit funky."
Little Treasures Magazine, Aug / Sept 2000.
