Midsummer Songaday: Day 13

Now here's some obscurity for you! Wikipedia doesn't even have a page for these folks, and google does its best to try to make you look for something else. From Last.Fm: "Oceania is a New Zealand band which combines Maori music and modern music. The band’s lead singer is Hinewehi Mohi. Music is written and performed by Mohi and Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke fame."
Here's their page on the album:
And the singer's website:
Okay enough linking, about the song. This is the first song off the 1999 album, and like everything else in the album it's sung in Maori. But the album itself is still a huge breath of fresh air into things, and remains one of my favorite examples of world music (along with stuff like Niyaz). So seriously, the album is great, give it a listen (if you can) or totally buy it, it's good stuff.

Hey, guess what? The Mass Effect Trilogy Perfect Ending Replay Run completed! I got 100% of quests in all three games, 100% paragon the whole way through, saw the Perfect Ending. I've been sitting here wondering what the hell I'm supposed to do now that I don't have any more Mass Effect (writing up all those posts I owe this place didn't come up). Chances are it won't be long before I start an Mass Effect Trilogy Renegade Run as female Shepard. Ended up doing a bunch of Stars Without Number stuff though.
Anyway, later.

End Recording,
