1:10 First song: Daniel and Ashley

The Hamilton couple originally from Korea have been causing an internet sensation with the songs they perform in Te Reo Māori. They realised they didn't know much about Māori culture and so decided to use their love of music as a way to learn more. As well as posting their songs on Facebook, they performed at a number of Matariki celebrations earlier this year and are in today for First Song.

The Korean couple have used music to learn more about Māori culture and language. Daniel Chung (pictured left) and Ashley Chung (pictured right).
