NZ Olympic Waiata released

A special Olympic Waiata has been released by the Māori Language Commission to support New Zealand athletes at the Olympics.
The song is called Ana Hī and was commissioned by Te Taura Whiri o Te Reo Māori.
Commission chief executive Ngāhiwi Apanui said the song was composed in a way that was easy for all New Zealanders to join in. “It’s catchy, it’s easy to sing, it’s beautifully produced, it’s very modern,” he said.
The song is performed by Kirsten Te Rito and James Illingworth and Wellington kapa haka group Ngā Taonga Mai Tawhiti.
The song and accompanying video was launched at an event on Monday night where it was endorsed by veteran Olympian Barbara Kendall.
