Category: Waiata | Song | Pese

Waiata is the Māori word for song. Pese is the Samoan word. Music is a universal language in any language. And music and song is one way to learn a new language, the history and stories of people and their cultural meanings. These songs in te reo Māori and other languages of the Pacific region are selected for their historical significance and, or, their powerful, and often, tender messages. They speak to the heart and mind too, if you let them.
