The Latest From Moana...
WAIHEKE ISLAND NOV 1 (23 Oct)
Very excited to take my band across to gorgeous Waiheke Island for a one-off concert on Nov 1 at Artworks. We will play the entire album and a few older songs; it will be an experience! Looking forward to it. Tickets are available from Toi Gallery in Oneroa or through Eventfinder. Limited space so get in now! T.K will once again join us with his own set of original songs and his gorgeous voice. See you there.
RIMA REVIEWS (7 Oct)
‘Free steers much of the album into a new genre of waiata-dub and punchy dancefloor directed songs where politics and te reo slip in effortlessly. RIMA is a powerful and important collection. Highly recommended. (G.Reid, NZ Herald)
Easily her most sonically exciting album, RIMA offers up an enticing blend of waiata, haka, and deeply rhythmic electronica…Standout tracks include Water People, a deliciously dubbed out tune with haka, chants and a deep groove. Then there’s the moody spiritual vibes of Ko Au, and Aotearoa, which sounds like Pitch Black remixing Moana, all bleepy electronica and fizzy tempos. There’s a lot to discover in this record. It is beautifully layered. (Peter McLennan, 13th Floor)
Moana & the Tribe at Trevor Reekie's RNZ 101 (1 Oct)
