To celebrate Māori Language Week (13-19 September 2021), we’ve teamed up with Aotearoa’s biggest band, SIX60, to support their first original bilingual track Pepeha.
Sold exclusively at New World, get your hands on their limited-edition, collectors’ item booklet for just $4.99. The booklet includes a download of Pepeha, chords and lyrics so you can learn to play it, each band members’ individual pepeha, plus exclusive photos, designs and a foldout SIX60 poster. All proceeds from the sale of the booklet will go towards the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre which helps bring accessible music therapy to all people, especially those with special needs.
Stock is VERY limited, so get in quickly.
SIX60 collectors' booklet
What is a pepeha?
SIX60 have been exploring their own pepeha and want to get more New Zealanders to do the same, so they’ve created a song around it.
Pepeha is a way of introducing yourself in Māori. It tells people who you are by sharing your connections with the people and places that are important to you.
If you’d like to write your own pepeha, you can use the template on pepeha.nz.
