Meri Kirihimete sold in excess of 4000 CD's in 2004 ... and our TV campaign in 2005 will have more than double the impact with 102 x30 second spots on Maori TV.
The HK Crew ("HK" stands for "Hana Koko" which translates to "Santa Claus" in English) comprises members from Fat Freddys Drop, Wai and Maia who were assembled by MC Dasha to create the first ever album of Christmas songs to be recorded in te reo Maori.
Meri Kirihimete is melodic ... the title track and Te Tamaiti A Meri (Mary's Boy Child) show K11na's smooth soulful vocals to the fore
Meri Kirihimete is fun ... check out Nga Ra O Kirihimete (The 10 Days Of Christmas) .. that's right 10, not 12!
Meri Kirihimete is sing-a-long ... you'll pick up the lyrics for Tatangi (Jingle Bells) real quick
Meri Kirihimete is radio friendly ... Tangi Nga Pere (Please Come Home For Christmas) and Feliz Navidad (Feliz Navidad) will be re-serviced to commercial radio
Meri Kirihimete is cool and groovy ... Ka Mahara (White Christmas) as you have never heard it before.
Meri Kirihimete is reggae-fied ... Kei Te Haere Mai A Hana Koko (Santa Claus Is Coming To Town) is given the uplifting reggae treatment
Meri Kirihimete is reverent ... Po Tapu (Silent Night) will remind you that Christmas is about the birth of baby Jesus
Meri Kirihimete is very funky ... Te Tama Patu Taramu (Little Drummer Boy) lets MC Dasha go wild overlaid by the cool vocals of Missy K.
