Te Maeva Nui NZ 2021 - Takitumu: Kapa Rima
Takitumu perform their Kapa rima "Oki mai" at the 2021 Te Maeva Nui NZ festival.
The song was composed by Vivian Hosking-Aue and Puretu Aue.
Takitumu’s Kapa Rima is about the ongoing issue of homelessness here in Auckland and are raising awareness that homelessness is a significant issue in New Zealand and that they, as Cook Islanders, could make a difference by uniting together to tackle this issue.
They feel it is an issue for them as Cook Islanders to understand in depth what is happening in our society today. In relation to resilience, we can recover from homelessness if we unite together, care for one another and share unconditional love to the homeless.
They believe that homelessness is important to cover in their Kapa Rima as they want to showcase their deepest sympathy to this worldwide issue, through their lyrics and choreography.
