An important driving force of New Zealand is a strong tradition of standing together as one people. This song celebrates a sense of inclusiveness that makes us so special. It takes the form of a Scottish march with bagpipes in recognition of the pipe bands throughout the country. Use of the term "Haere Mai" reminds us of powhiris at maraes, a quintessential part of who we are as a people.
The vocalist is Anastasia Kareva.
