into kapa haka festival anthem
One of Six60's biggest hits, The Greatest, has been translated into te reo Māori to create the official Te Matatini theme song for 2023.
Its lead singer Matiu Walters said the song was the perfect expression of what it meant to perform kapa haka at the highest level.
"Once it's gone through that filter and translated, it makes a lot of sense, what kapa haka stands for, the process of working and striving and putting yourself in a position to win but also to fail.
