A programme of waiata Māori recorded at a concert by students of Te Waipounamu Māori Girls' College in Christchurch.
Te Waipounamu Māori Girls' College. Prog 1 Part 1
This concert was recorded in Christchurch
First a hymn, "Aue e Ihu tirohia"
And now an action song "Rangatahi" based on an old Māori proverb which calls on the younger members of the Māori generation to re-capture the spirit of their ancestors and to learn all they can of Māori culture.
"Ko wai?" is a song that asks, 'Who are we?' where they answer, 'We are the young people of Te Waipounamu doing all we can to recapture all that is best in Māori culture'.
"Awhi mai ra e hine", an action song.
And finally, a lullaby, "Hine e hine".
