Hero image for 100/Karawhiua

In this clip, iconic reggae band Katchafire perform their hit ‘100’ in te reo. The song is an ode to the mums and wives who hold it down at home, while the band is away on tour. Lead singer Logan Bell (Ngāti Toa Rangatira) makes a small but significant act of reclamation of a language lost to his mother Haneta. 'Karawhuia' got to number two on Ngā Waiata Kairangi, the recently launched te reo Māori music chart. The song featured on the second episode of web series Waiata/Anthems. It was translated by mātanga reo (language expert) Paraone Gloyne (Ngāti Raukawa ki Wharepūhanga, Ngāti Maniapoto).

I'm very proud of you Logan. The language is gone in my family...because you know that most of us have been brought up with speaking nothing but English ... I'm angry because I lost the language.
– Logan Bell's mother Haneta Bell on her son singing '100' in te reo, in web series Waiata/Anthems
