Described as an '...early World War One setting canoe poi song' which was originally sung by concert parties on the east coast of the North Island in fund raising concerts for World War One Maori soldiers. Composed by P. H. Tomoana, it is one of a number of his songs that appeared in the second decade of the twentieth century, and which broke from the traditional waiata styles of Maori music.
Written for the City of Auckland Singers
