Waiata/Anthems - First Episode (excerpt)

Web (Excerpts) – 2021

In this short excerpt from episode one of Waiata/Anthems, singer Hollie Smith expresses mixed feelings about rerecording classic track 'Bathe in the River'/'Kōrukutia' in te reo Māori. Smith's respect for the language means she approaches her performance with a certain amount of fear but she is determined to support the kaupapa (values) of the project, and champion te reo in popular culture. The song's composer Don McGlashan joins Smith to sing backup on the track, which was part of the second Waiata/Anthems album. The web series was co-produced by Māori music advocate Hinewehi Mohi and director Julia Parnell. 

It's such an honour for a Pākehā to have a song translated into te reo Māori.
– 'Bathe in the River' composer Don McGlashan
