“It’s about waiata and it’s about the language, but for me it changed my life.”

Bronson Price aka Melodownz and Hana Mereraiha have been on a powerful journey together as part of the second Waiata / Anthems album that was recently released.  

The duo sit down to reflect on their experience and the positive impact the project will have on the revitalisation of te reo Māori. 

This is part of our new reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi Media, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho.

Stay tuned for a new episode every week.
