about

The english language translation of this track titled 'Āiotanga' - is 'Simplicity'.
It speaks of the natural beauty of Papatūānuku (mother earth) and Ranginui (sky father) and everything in between - the stars of the night, nature and everything working together as one.

lyrics

HE ĀIOTANGA
Ka tirohia te rā e piki ana 
He āiotanga 
Ka tirohia te rā e tō ana 
He āiotanga
Ka tirohia ngā ringa hurihuri o te karaka 
Ka momi hau ki roto 
Ka whakaputa ki waho 

Ka kitea te tipunga matomato 
Ka tirohia ngā kapua i te rangi 
Ngā whetū rānei i te pō 
Ki kōnei, konā, waenganui 
Papatuānuku Ranginui
