Experience the Māori Group’s captivating rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody in their native language that will surely bring joy to your heart

It’s impressive to watch an actual Māori choir sing the song in its original tongue.

The song was performed on February 21 during Te Matatini, the national kapa haka festival in Wellington, New Zealand, by the group Hātea Kapa Haka.

Forty-six kapa haka (Māori performing arts) groups come together for the event to compete against one another.

According to Newshub, Hātea Kapa Haka and musician William Waiirua worked together to produce

a Māori version of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in honor of Freddie Mercury and to commemorate the Oscar-nominated film based on his life.

Although the group had already made a music video for their rendition, witnessing it live is a whole different experience.

Everything is amazing, including the presentation, harmony, and voices. A cultural mashup like this serves as a reminder of how small the world has grown.

The stark difference between the Māori people’s traditional kapa haka and Queen’s British rock from the 1970s is evident.

Nevertheless, the combination of the two is flawless. This concert is a wonderful illustration of how music has the ability to bridge cultures with lovely outcomes.

Here’s where you may see the live performance:
