Impromptu kapa haka draws crowd of hundreds in Spain, goes viral

A beautiful impromptu kapa haka performance from a group of Kiwi students has drawn massive crowds in Spain.

The students, from St Joseph's Māori Girls' College in Napier, were on tour in Europe when they decided to perform a beautiful collection of waiata for a crowd in Barcelona.

A video of the performance, which has since gone viral with almost 300,000 views, was posted a week ago on Facebook.

It shows the crowds of hundreds gathering for a performance lasting around half an hour.

The video has thousands of comments, with Kiwis living around the world saying the performance left them feeling homesick.

"I'm watching this from Olomouc in the Czech Republic, and it makes me proud to come from NZ," said one comment.

Hundreds of other comments used the term "ataahua", the Māori word for beautiful, to describe the performance.

"Proud of our young Wāhine, absolutely Ataahua."
