    For the Māori, I'm guessing they'll choose "Pōkarekare Ana" for the main theme. It's our most well-known song, and probably out of copyright by now:


    In the Ancient Era you could also add a waiata or some kapa haka music. Or some ambient music with traditional instruments (like in the kōauau video on the previous page of this thread). Works well with Australia's didgeridoo music.

    If you wanted a haka-inspired song, then something like "Tarakihi" would be epic, although that particular song is copyrighted and less well known.

    Not sure if anybody mentioned it in this thread, but I pointed out in the other thread that Hungary's theme appears to be Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.

    Which seems sort of weird considering they have typically gone for folk music themes.

    Is Hungarian Rhapsody based on Hungarian folk music?

    @Eagle Pursuit Off the top of my head I don't know the compositional history of Hungarian Rhapsody. It felt like a rather on the nose choice to me, but I have a hard time saying no to Liszt...Wikipedia has this to say:

    So not based on a folk tune but influenced by folk music.

    I guess it is close enough to the folk music theme and they just couldn't resist using a Hungarian icon.

    Someone on the Hungary thread posted this. The folk song at the beginning, Cinege Cinege, sounds very similar to the Hungarian theme at the end of the video.

    It's a bit cliche but I think the Canadian Railway Trilogy or Log Driver's Waltz would work for Canada.

    I would expect to see "C'est L'aviron" for Canada. Fits the MO of a classic folk song, while also being quite catchy.

    I hope to hear Hungarian music before the livestream. It sounded great in the First Look, so hearing a full version would be great. I hope for Industrial version.

    If Canada's in, doesn't have to be O Canada? In the old Railroads game they had a fantastic riff on that when you played the NW scenario.

    We did also hear their Industrial or Medieval theme version I think, but it got cut out due to technical issues (there was a weird moment where the volume suddenly sharply increased, sparking some related Twitch commentary). Hopefully we hear their full industrial theme at another time. I am not as much a fan of their atomic version--it seems a bit slowed (at least for most of the song) compared to the version we hear in their first look video.

    Anyone know what the Hungarian theme is based on? It's likely at least two separate themes since the song kind of changes pace a lot towards the end.

    Look I just hope with the Maori theme that they recorded people singing in Maori, because it is a beautiful musical language

    It certainly is. I love Christopher Tin’s Kia hora te marino from Calling All Dawns. Not a traditional piece, but an original setting of a Maori proverb to orchestral music with a chant. A great example of the language nonetheless.

    I think Maori theme should go like Macedon theme. A joyful and beautiful Maori singing, and then suddenly intense and war-ish haka chant and maybe back into Maori singing again
