Oire Tokoroa perform their Imene Tuki at the 2021 Te Maeva Nui NZ festival.
They said this about their song:
"There is a voice that comes from the south that challenges the very fabric of our normalcy ie what we take for granted. One from the south is evil and the other offers hope. They demand a sign to show their power.
Jesus reminds us of Jonah who was inside the whale for 3rays and 3 nights just as Jesus lay in the tomb for that time. We are reminded of the two queens one from the south and the other the mother of Jesus who is our vision of royalty to aspire to. Without this faith we will not conquer life’s challenges to bring about harmony.
This is our desire, this is our resilience, this is Te Maeva Nui 2021. Kua tu Atoa." - Oire Tokoroa
