Upper Hutt Posse: Tohe

Ko ‘Tohe’ te ingoa o tēnei kōpae. Ko te āhua nei ko te kaupapa o te kōpae nei ko te mana motuhake me te tino rangatiratanga. Ko te ‘electronica’ te momo rangi o ēnei waiata. Ko te reo Māori me te reo Pākeha ngā reo o tēnei kōpae.

I timata a Upper Hutt Posse i te tau 1985. Ko ngā kaiwaiata ko Te Kupu, ko MC Wiya rātou ko Ātaahua. He roopu e whai ana i te take mana motuhake me aua atu take, arā, ko ngā ‘freedom fighters’. E ai ki a rātou kei te hē te mahi o te kāwanatanga, te pirihimana, te ture me aua momo roopu.

He āhua pai tēnei kōpae. He pai mō ngā rangatahi mō te kanikani. He tere rawa te patupatu o ngā waiata. Kāore i te pai mō te nuinga o ngā pakeke me ngā kaumātua. E ōrite ana te nuinga o ngā waiata, kāore he rerekētanga. Ahakoa ērā, he kōpae pai tēnei mō te whakaawe i ngā rangatahi Māori ki te whawhai mō ō rātou tino rangatira, ō rātou mana motuhake hoki.

In NZ.

: When my mother gave me my name, it was a name she couldn’t pronounce. The harsh accents of the Arabic language eluded the Pākehā tongue. Growing up, I always felt more comfortable introducing myself as she knew me—Mah-dee or Ma-ha-dee—just about anything that made me feel
