The Latest From Moana...
Maori Language Week (24 Jul)
It's that time of year again, where NZ celebrates our beautiful indigenous language, the kind where vowels drip from the tongue like honey! Watch out for us on 'Good Morning' TVNZ next week - we are performing our awardwinning song "Upokohue." Kia kaha ki te korero Maori.
Bonjour! (19 Jun)
Heading to the Galatos this Saturday night to sing as part of a French Alliance festival thats happening right around the world. Join us!
Native Affairs (20 May)
Looking forward to a conversation with Mihirangi Forbes on Native Affairs (MTS) this upcoming Monday, May 25 about our song Ūpokohue.
Globally Hot (5 May)
It's official - Māori music is hot! Moana & the Tribe have picked up 2nd place in the World Music category of the International Songwriting Contest, a massive achievement considering there were over 18,000 entries from 118 countries. Ūpokohue is a tribute and lovesong to the endangered Maui dolphin. With lyrics from Scotty Morrison and production by Paddy Free, this is one of our most hypnotic songs from the album RIMA.
