Final farewell for legendary composer Tommy Taurima

Legendary composer Tommy Taurima
was laid to rest today, and as expected,
at the final evening of his tangi, the occasion was filled
with moving tributes and song. Reporter Hania Douglas
was there and filed this report. Just one last song… …for the man who made
a huge impression on their lives. His pupils all agree, Tommy Taurima
was one of a kind. These are just a handful
of the people Taurima trained to entertain the masses in Europe,
America, the Pacific and more; showing them just how big
the world could be. And while the legend has passed on,
his legacy remains. Hania Douglas, Te Karere.
