Loop are proud to present Kono 003, a compilation with a core focus of celebrating the use of Te Reo Māori in waiata and everyday life. This third edition in the Kono series brings a focus on translating some much loved waiata into Te Reo Māori.

E poho kererū ana a Kono ki te tuku i a Kono 003. He kohinga waiata tēnei hei whakanui i te reo Māori i roto i ngā titonga waiata, ā te urunga ki roto i ngā mahi o ia rā. Ko te whakaputanga tuatoru tēnei o Kono e whakamāoritia ai ngā waiata rorotu o te motu.

With previous versions released as part of the Loop Select series, this new installment Kono 003 features appearances from artists including Anna Coddington, Ria Hall, Katchafire, Louis Baker,The Nudge & Troy Kingi. This collection, released in conjunction with Waiata Anthems, features new life given to a number of tracks presented in Te Reo for the first time.

E whakamenomeno ana te whakaputanga nei o Kono 003 i ngā kaiwaiata pēnei i a Anna Coddington rātou ko Ria Hall, ko Katchafire, ko Louis Baker,ko The Nudge, ko Troy Kingi hoki. E hono ana tēnei kohinga waiata ki Waiata Anthems. Mā te whakaputanga nei ēnei waiata o mua e whakaoratia anō i roto i te reo Māori.
