If you’re not familiar with the 1983 classic Poi E (lyrics by Ngoi Pewhairangi and music by Dalvanius Prime) you might want to check out the clip below!
Also released this year is a highly recommended documentary about the music video (see below) which looks more closely at the town of Patea and the circumstances surrounding the creation of the song in the 80’s.
