Tūtahi, meaning together, represents a collective of NZ musicians coming together with a common purpose.
The first release was 'Get Up, Stand Up', with a goal of getting New Zealanders out there for the 2014 election, to ensure that everyone would Stand Up and make their voices heard, by creating a version of the Bob Marley classic.
The second, 'Stay', was created by over 20 artists in collaboration while in lockdown. ‘Stay’ is a waiata created with one simple goal - encouraging the people of Aotearoa to “stay home, save lives”.
