The song is called ia orana.This particular version is very old but is still popular in some parts of the world. Its a song about a tahitian lady(vahine tahiti) Your best bet would be to check out music stores online that sell tahitian music. Unfortunately I have forgotten the artist but just quote the first line of the song and hopefully some one will be able to point you in the right direction!! It goes: iaorana iaorana iaorana e, E vahine tahiti, Aue aue te nehe nehe, E vahine tahiti....

Hey Papillion,

Actually, the song is called Tahiti, Tahiti and it's by the group Voyage. It's the original to the version sang by Nawaiho'olu'uokeanuenue.

And yes...it is very old. I know that my cousin used to dance to it when she was a teen and she's in her 40's now. = )

I have the version from the video as well as the remake. Let me know if you want them and I can e-mail them over to you.
