Story

The music was inspired after performing with Zakir Hussain in March 2005. The lyrics, however, came about after attending a seminar with one of the world’s foremost experts on productivity improvement, Marten Runow, where he explained the importance of fully understanding the meaning of words. 

Lyrics

TE KUPU (The word)
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

Kafai e ke mauagia
Mauagia e koe te kupu
Kua lelea kehe ai
Te lalolagi kua matafi
Kua matafi katoa
Katoa i te lagi
Lanumoana
E faigofie lava
E tahi lava te faiga

When you discover the (misunderstood) word
And blow it all away
The whole world clears
The sun shines through
And all around skyblue
It’s so simple
There is only
One way through
