Our Christmas Album is finally out – “Whero: Kirihimete | Kilisimasi”!
Thirteen awesome tracks that you and your tamariki can enjoy together! The album is a mixture of originals written by Siu, with a few faves that you’ll recognise. There are waiata that are bilingual Māori and Tonga, and our first original Tongan Christmas lullaby, translated by our māmā!

We run weekly sessions at locations around Ōtautahi/Christchurch, and are available to perform at preschools and public / private events as well.
The Rainbow Collection is five bilingual Māori/English books, based on original waiata, written by Siu Williams-Lemi. The collection is a collaborative team effort with a proudly NZ-based team of wāhine toa. You can purchase the books here, or look out for them at your local library!
We had the pleasure of creating 100 songs in collaboration with Whānau Āwhina Plunket, gratefully funded by the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, as part of the ‘Pasifika Beatz’ resource toolkit. 10 albums in 10 different Pacific Island languages, with 10 songs per album, these albums are a cultural music resource, for all!
We use this song near the end of all our sessions to transition from a high-energy final song to our lullaby. read more >
