Waiata/Anthems

Web, 2021

In 2019 number one album Waiata/Anthems featured songs rerecorded in te reo Māori. This 2021 web series follows the creation of a second album, featuring music by Annie Crummer, Che Fu, Katchafire, Melodownz, Hollie Smith and Don McGlashan, and return appearances by Bic Runga and Drax Project. As the artists learn their te reo lyrics they discuss the songs, and their own cultural heritage. Waiata/Anthems is produced by Māori music advocate Hinewehi Mohi and director Julia Parnell (Six60:Till the Lights Go Out).
