Ko te waiata mō tēnei rangi ko "Anei ko Hono Heke e". Kaore ahau i te moohio naa wai i tito engari i ako ahau i teenei waiata ki ta Te Kupenga i nga tau 1980 ki te 1989 i raro i te ringa tohu a Henare Mahanga.
The song for today is "Anei ko Hono Heke". The composer is unkownen however i first learnt this song in the early 80s with Te Kupenga Midgets of Otara, South Auckland under the tutoring of Henare Mahanga o Ngapuhi.
I found a great video footage and needed to share it!
One of my favourite iconic waiata of the 90's!
Atamarie e te iwi!

I wouldn't call it a national anthem … I think it's deeper than that. – Howard Morrison (nzonscreen.com)
It's a mesmerizing type of melody ... It's easily remembered, most of the pertinent words are easily remembered and I think even for the hardened kiwi who's singing it, it still conjures up some interior view that that person holds for this country that we're in.– Late broadcaster Henare Te Ua (nzonscreen.com)
