Maori Music Month - Toni Huata releases new video 'Waiora'

Maori Music Month - Toni Huata releases new video 'Waiora"

Announcing the video release of ‘WAIORA’ by Toni Huata.

In the wake of a busy Matariki season, which saw Toni Huata performing new works throughout Aotearoa. Toni in celebration August’s Māori Music Month, will be performing this weekend as part of ‘New World’, at ‘Aotearoas Most Talented’ on 16th, Te Mata Peak on 18th, ‘Te Reo Ki Tua’ on 23/24th and is very happy to announce the release of her new video ‘WAIORA” from her upcoming album ‘Te Rerenga – The Journey’ due for release during Maori Language Week 10-16 September 2018


‘This song is my acknowledgement to our waters, the rejuvenation within our bodies and with the environment. ‘WAIORA’ refers to life water and is also one of identity. Our bodies are made up of mostly water so it is not surprising that we are affected heavily by the lack of water within our environment and ourselves. I truly identify with fresh water or waimāori and my river that influenced me growing up being Te Wairoa Hopupu Honengenenge Matangirau in Wairoa, which is also our reflective, spiritual waters – wairua. This song is one for inner and outer hauora and certainly one of refection” Toni Huata

This stunning video by Motion Valley, features Oribe Maipi, in search of her truth and being drawn to what rejuvenates her and in the end what replenishes the land.

Many thanks to Te Māngai Pāho, Paddy Free and Motion Valley for their support and the stunning locations of Wainamu and Studio63,
ngā mihi aroha ki a koutou katoa.
