The Latest From Moana...

Aroha (25 Aug)
We are preparing to drop a new song out into the world to celebrate Māori Language Week. It is a collaboration with Saami star Mari Boine, following on from previous collaborations with Shellie Morris (Australia), Inka Mbing (Taiwan) and Jani Lauzon (Canada) - all indigenous first nations women with powerful voices - gamechangers. This new song is incredibly soothing, something we need in these Covid times. Lyrics by Scotty Morrison. Music by Paddy Free.
