Kiwi Songs For Kiwi Kids
The soundtrack of your childhood
Wearing jandals. Climbing trees. Making play huts in the toi toi bushes.
Riding to school in the rain on your chopper or BMX with spokey dokies clicking in the wheels.
Singing in assembly from the school OHP. Kiwi cricket. Breakdancing.
Buying fireworks. Walking in pairs on school excursions. Fish and chip Fridays.
Endless NZ summers licking Jelly Tips and sharing a 20 cent mixture...
and everything good that comes with growing up a Kiwi Kid!
Kiwi Songs for Kiwi Kids is the definitive collection of songs from your childhood in both English and Te Reo. An album of classic, fun songs - One Day A Taniwha, Oma Rapeti, Ma Is White, Tutira Mai Nga Iwi, the famous Haka, and many more. This special recording of some of New Zealand's finest performers includes spoken words in English and Maori - an ideal way to introduce youngsters to our musical and cultural heritage.
The Kiwi Songs for Kiwi Kids project is an international collaboration of homesick NZ-born musicians and performers who live overseas; featuring Pia Midgley - actor and mother to young Hugo (the inspiration for this project); Jason Te Patu - singer (Dave Dobbyn, Annie Crummer) and choreographer (NZ Idol); and Jeremy Brennan - actor (The Holy Roller Movie) and musician (King Casual, Ava Torch); with cover artwork by Craig Bunting.
