Day 4: Hitting a note - Activity 1 The Waiata - A Song in Your Heart - Week one

The waiata I have chose is called te aho mai ra. This is a very nice waiata. I was going to choose Poi E or Tutira mai nga iwi. I chose te aho mai ra because the lyrics are very graceful. There were a heap of songs to chose but te aho mai ra was the best for me. If I was to rate is from 1st - 3rd it will be, Tiaho Mai ra 1st - Poi E 2nd , Tutira mai nga iwi 3rd. You can search these waiata's on google. Here is a link if you want to listen to the waiata - CLICK HERE!
The lyrics of this waiata is:
Tiaho mai rā
Te whetu o te ata
Kopu i te ao,
Pareārau i te pō
Ka tu te ao marama
he ao hara
Tu mai rā koe hei tohu i ahau,
Tu mai rā koe hei tohu i ahau,

E kore te aroha,
E kaupare noa
Hoki mai rā ki ahau, e te tau.
Hoki mai rā ki ahau, e te tau.

Tiaho mai rā
Te whetu o te ata
Kopu i te ao,
Pareārau i te pō
Ka tu he o marama
he ahara
Tu mai rā koe hei tohu i ahau,
Tu mai rā koe hei tohu i ahau

  1. Hi Fau,

    Great work! I like how you have picked a top three. It can be tricky to just pick one favourite!
    This is beautiful waiata. Good choice! I wonder what the lyrics mean. Could you translate them into English to help me understand? I only know a little Maori so can pick up on words sometimes but would love to know what the whole thing meant!

    Cheers,
    Ruby.
