Santa Baby redux!

Copyright © Françoise Herrmann

The following Xmas message was delivered at the New Zealand Parliament, earlier this month, by New Zealand Maori Party co-leaders Marama Fox and Te Ururoa Flavell, playing the ukulele.


In Marama Fox’s own comment: “There is often a lot of doom and gloom in parliament. We wanted to enlighten everyone with a little vibrancy”.  Plus, as you can see, there is also a real message in this take on the American, Eartha Mae Kitt, 1950's classic, Santa Baby -- about poverty, homelessness, and children, to whom the future belongs, not to mention the call for joining the Maori Party!

In any event, you might all agree that Marama Fox has a great voice!

Merry Xmas everyone
