New Zealand Music Month 2018 sees the release of a new Māori language music video by RANEA (Teresa McGregor). Last year facebook fans voted for the song “ĀIO” to be RANEA’s next music video, and a successful funding application to Te Māngai Pāho enabled a video to be produced by Fiona Apanui-Kupenga of Te Amokura Productions.
“ĀIO” is an original composition from Ranea’s award-winning album “TIHEI MAURI ORA” produced by Maaka Phat. The song conveys the parallel and corresponding life between nature and human-being, peace and war, light and darkness, innocence and corruption. Both ‘entities’ are interconnected, they co-exist. Hāhā te whenua, hāhā te tangata. If land is desolate, so too will man
RANEA’s “TIHEI MAURI ORA” album including “ĀIO” is available online on all major digital platforms including iTunes and Spotify.
