Soulful sound to end your week
A chill vibe to close the week with some of Wellington's young talent presenting their original works as well as music from the collections by artists that have inspired them.
Māori, English, electronic, acoustic — this combination of musicians will captivate you.
This is the first in a series of events leading up to the opening, in September, of the Pūkana exhibition, which will celebrate Māori and Performing Arts.
About the musicians
Ladyfruit says this about herself ‘Put me in a box and I’ll imagine it into a spaceship and blast off! I like to flow in and out of any genre. Imagine soul, hip hop, R'n'B, jazz and world music making a baby. Modern day storytelling singing about true school stuff’.
Amba Holly moved from Taupiri to Wellington in 2000 and loves RnB and Soul fusion and acoustic styled music — she composes in both Māori and English. Amba won Best Māori Solo Female Artist at the 2016 Waiata Māori Music Awards
Mīharo Gregory is Christchurch born and raised, he studied in Invercargill and started a band before moving to Wellington. His musical mission? Trying to spread the love and support other musicians via collaborating. Battle of the Band finalist ‘Nation’ — placing in the top 10.
