Poi E: The Story of Our Song

Music, Documentary 1h 36m 2016

AroView: An aptly feel-good documentary account of the unlikely pop hit that boldly mashed up “Kapa Haka” song tradition and Te Reo Maori lyrics with funky hip-hop and 80’s technology to reach Number 1 on the NZ charts and outsell all-comers in 1984 before being enshrined as a cultural icon.

Centred around the song’s brainchild, the late Dalvanius Prime, and a host of affable Patea Maori Club members, contemporary creatives like Taika Waititi and Stan Walker cite its huge influence and contribute to the warm nostalgic glow.
