Waiata

The translation of these songs is not word for word, but an attempt to get across the essence of the song. Waiata, both traditional and contemporary, are metaphoric, a form of poetry. There are many different ways of translating the words. But if you do spot something that you feel should be translated differently, please go to Support and fill in the Feedback Form.
