peace be widespread

Posted on: February 26, 2011

American-born Chinese composer Christopher Tin won two Grammy Awards for his album “Calling All Dawns”.

The win marks the first time in history that a Grammy has been awarded to a composition written for a video game.

Kia hora te marino
kia whakapapa pounamu te moana
kia tere te karohirohi
i mua i tou huarahi
Haere e tama haere

Let Peace be widespread
Let the sea glisten like the greenstone
May your path be straight
Like the flight of the dove
Go in Peace and with my blessings Moko
