‘Tātou Tātou E’ V3 is the 3rd album from the award-winning collective. Released in ‘Te Wiki O Te Reo Māori’, ʻMāori Language Weekʻ 2013, this album is bilingual, which is new for the ʻTātou Tātou Eʻ albums being V1 and V2 were 100% te reo Māori.
V3 has a vibrant blend of World, Urban and Electronic styles with a solid cross-cultural vibe between our returning Māori collective and talented producer Kevin Mark Trail (UK).
We call it, our Aotearoa/London Edition.
‘Tātou Tātou E’ collective for V3 are: Kiri Eriwata, Ariana Tikao, Huia Hamon, 2XL, JGeeks, Emmiline Henry, Cool Rainbows, Sheree Waitoa, Kevin Mark Trail and DLove.
Each of these artists are from vast music genres, different iwiʻs and have remarkably different styles. Having them together to create this album has been a real privilege and the result is a high quality and diverse sound.
ʻTātou Tātou Eʻ V3 was lovingly Recorded Mixed and Mastered at Kog Studio with some of the best gear in the Southern Hemisphere and would not have been possible without the assistance of over 40 supporters for our ‘Pledge Me’ campaign. Thank you each and every one. Mauri ora!
Our collective for ‘Tātou Tātou E’ V1 and V2 were the Winners of ʻBest Urban Albumʻ for 2011 and 2012 at the Waiata Maori Music Awards.
