New Zealand music has been influenced by blues, jazz, country, rock and roll and hip hop, with many of these genres given a New Zealand and Polynesian interpretation.[273] Māori developed traditional chants and songs rooted from their ancient South-East Asian origins, and after years of isolation created a unique "monotonous" and "doleful" sound.[274] Flutes and trumpets were used as musical instruments[275] or as signaling devices during war or special occasions.[276] Early settlers brought over their ethnic music, which predominately consisted of choral music, and musicians began touring New Zealand in the 1860s.[277] The New Zealand recording industry began to develop from 1940 onwards and many New Zealand musicians have obtained success in Britain and the USA.[273] Some artists release Māori language songs and the Māori tradition-based art of kapa haka (song and dance) has made a resurgence.[278]

Radio first arrived in New Zealand in 1922 and television in 1960, with the number of New Zealand films significantly increased during the 1970s.[279] In 1978 the New Zealand Film Commission started assisting local film-makers and many films attained a world audience, some receiving international acknowledgement. Deregulation in the 1980s saw a sudden increase in the numbers of radio and television stations.[279] New Zealand television broadcasts mostly American and British programming, along with a large number of Australian and local shows. The country's diverse scenery and compact size, plus government incentives,[280] has encouraged some producers to film big budget movies in New Zealand.[281] The New Zealand media industry is dominated by a small number of companies, most of which are foreign-owned, although the state retains ownership of some television and radio stations. Between 2003 and 2008, Reporters Without Borders consistently ranked New Zealand's press freedom in the top twenty.[282]
