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.
