Tiki Taane & Arli Liberman – Hold On To The Dream Ft. Louis Baker: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

Hold OnHere is the blurb with more:

After employing local music maestros Tiki Taane (Ngāti Maniapoto) and Arli Liberman (Israel/Aotearoa) as score composers, Jonathan presented the duo with a challenge; to close the film off with a piece of music that will emotionally, spiritually, and sonically lift the audience from the gravity of the historical kaupapa portrayed in the film. Tiki and Arli’s response is Hold On To The Dream.

Featuring ethereal vocal delivery from songbird Louis Baker (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Tū), the heartfelt anthem beautifully seals the film’s underlying message of hope, unity, composition, and liberation.  “Hold on to the Dream” is a timely reminder to honour our origins and our responsibilities, to never lose sight of our dreams and to continue our ancestral legacy of fighting for eternal freedom.

Hold on to the Dream by Tiki Taane & Arli Liberman featuring Louis Baker, is available via all digital platforms from June 21st.
