Incredible video of te reo Māori rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody

A Whangārei Kapa Haka group stole the show on Thursday with an amazing cover of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' - all in te reo Māori.

Hātea Kapa Haka collaborated with internet star William Wariiua to pay tribute to the late Freddie Mercury, and to celebrate the release of the Queen biopic, also titled Bohemian Rhapsody.

Together, the group and Mr Waiirua created a music video for their cover, and on Thursday they took to the stage for a live performance. 

The group performed their cover at New Zealand's national kapa haka festival, Te Matatini.

"I have always loved the song 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. But never in my life did I think that we would be part of something this big" said Hātea Kapa Haka head tutor Pauline Hopa.

Te Matatini brings 46 kapa haka groups together to compete against one another. 

This year, the event is taking place in Wellington, the first time the Capital has hosted the event in 20 years.
