Moana Maniapoto - New Album Rima

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:42 pm on 2 November 2014

There is an eclectic mix of songs on Moana and the Tribe's latest album, Rima. First there is the electronic influence of musician Paddy Free and a commissioned duet with well-established singer and songwriter Don McGlashan. But there is still the messages of importance that is a key signature of Moana's work. The song 'Whole Worlds Watching' is a call for people to speak up about the atrocities in the Middle East and the acapella song 'Hands-Up' encourages people to vote. Te reo māori is woven into the album helped along with the contribution of te reo māori advocate and broadcaster, Scotty Morrison. Moana talks about Rima with Justine Murray.
