Native Affairs - Manea

By Semi Holland

16-year-old Lorde has broken records to become the first New Zealander to top the US BIllboard Music Charts.  

Now a group of Kura Kaupapa graduates turned pop singers, are on their own mission to top the world music charts with a new te reo Māori album.

They call themselves 'Manea' and one of our very own Te Kāea News Presenters, Amomai Pihama is their lead vocalist.

Semiramis Holland went to the studio to check them out.
