This is a Tongan classic, made popular for a new generation of Islanders by Spawnbreezie (who is Samoan). We love our Tongan music, too!

    Gosh you guys are so observant lol..

    Yes this song is Tongan, but Spawnie is Samoan. This site is for songs that are not only written in the Samoan language, but also songs that are performed by Samoans (whatever language it might be) and songs that lots of Samoans love, for example the beautiful Tokelauan jams from Te Vaka.

    Hope that helps ease your concerns about this song being Tongan.

    🙂

    Coming from a Tongan who grew up in the thick of it fresh in Tonga, song is a Tongan oldie, lyrics are proper Tongan none of the slang that’s used nowadays by the youth(mind a few words misspelled but it’s fine a samoan probably wrote it). When did everyone become so anal(sorry for my wrong) about lyrics? It’s about Polynesia not Samoan or Tongan! Maaaannnn >:(

      Please stop this argument God told us to love one another as he loved us. so Please calm down. spawnbreezie has but his soul and faith creating this song just for you not to listen to the words but to bring joy to the world he has used his gift from god. God didn’t say bring a beautiful noise. he said to bring a joyful noise. he wrote this song because he loves every cultural nation in this world. TYPE ALLELUIA IF YOU AGREE
