Kia Ora Whanau. On this special school holiday weekend, we’d like to share with you a true taonga from NZ on Screen – Prince Tui Teka.

Kicking off with a cover of his hero Elvis Presley’s ‘That’s Alright,’ the late Prince Tui Teka delivers a classic performance in this TVNZ-filmed variety show.

A classy Bernie Allen-led band and the Yandall Sisters back-up on the smoky Vegas-inspired set. Tui sings his hit ‘E Ipo’ with wife Missy, and they pay tribute to the song’s Maori lyricist Ngoi (‘Poi-E’) Pewhairangi.

The songs are peppered with warmth, humour and poi action (led by a young Pita Sharples and Te Roopu Manutaki), as Tui Teka confirms his reputation as one of Aotearoa’s great entertainers.
