Following the incredible success of the Waiata / Anthems album in 2019 and the TV series earlier this year, this September Waiata Anthems Week will come to life to shine light on te reo Māori.

An industry-wide initiative, Waiata Anthems Week will be a celebration of the best new waiata and honour champions and pioneers of te reo Māori who paved the way for future generations, supporting the emergence of a truly bilingual musical landscape.

Waiata Anthems Week will run from Monday 6th September through to Sunday 12th September with a number of music releases and shows across Aotearoa (dates to come!).

We’ll keep you up to date with releases and events as they are announced, but in the meantime check out the Waiata Anthems website here.
