Te Manawa - Farewell Zealandia: Forgotten Kiwi Songs of WW1

The forgotten Kiwi songs of World War One tell the story of what it meant to be a New Zealander living through the turmoil and tragedy at the time. Commemorating campaigns and battles as well as life on the home front, Farewell Zealandia is a musical record of people’s hopes and fears, sense of duty, loss and remembrance. Farewell Zealandia is an exhibition of selected New Zealand music from the World War One period. It consists of recordings of 20 songs and the stories behind them: who wrote them, why were they written, and what became of them. The exhibition will explore the role music played in the lives of New Zealanders at the time, both as a form of entertainment and as a vehicle for communicating ideals, aspirations and feelings about the war. Developed and toured by Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History in association with Musical Heritage New Zealand, kindly supported by the NZ Lottery Grants Board.
