Music can be a healing balm, as the artists featured in TVNZ's Waiata/Anthems have discovered. Produced by Notable Pictures, the series of short documentaries follows iconic musical artists from around Aotearoa as they translate and then record their songs in te reo Māori, and share some untold stories of fear and discovery along the way.
Featuring Drax Project, Katchafire’s Logan Bell, Bic Runga, Che Fu, MELODOWNZ, Annie Crummer, Hollie Smith and Don McGlashan. Each episode tracks the artist's path, through the origin of the song to its translation and meaning, exploring how it came to be, and ends with a powerful live performance.
