This second album explores political and spiritual matters. "Prophecies" and "Bird in a tree", both make reference to the Maori spiritual movements of Ratana and Ringatu.The closing track "Awe Maria" is an
a-cappella hymn performed by St Joseph's Maori Girls College Choir, which Moana was once a member of.

Moana and the Moahunters and their
new CD “Rua“ have opened up new
perspectives with their fusion of Pop,
Hip-hop and traditional Maori music.

Rua has got to be the album of the
year… Absolutely essential.
