In room 5 today we are continuing to learn waiata. You can listen to our attempt here. The second waiata we’ve learned is called TENA KOUTOU. Mr Madge played it on the ukulele, with Pirita the lead singer while the rest of the class backed him up. This waiata is used to greet and welcome people at a pöwhiri or used just as a welcome song. It is easy to learn
because each line is repeated or echoed. It is often performed with one person leading.Tena Koutou
