Moana Maniapoto - My Name Is Moana

Wed Apr 26th, 2017

Doors open: 7:00pm
Gig starts: 8:00pm
Entry: All Ages

Cover charge: $20.00

Celebrated singer-songwriter Moana Maniapoto is joined by her sister Trina, Pitch Black’s Paddy Free and Karlos Tunks Saunders in a heartfelt tribute to ‘moana’- the ocean - in ‘My Name is Moana’.

An Arts Laureate, Moana competed with 11,000 others to win the Grand Jury Prize of the International Songwriting Contest and has performed on stages all over the world including the Sydney Opera House – twice! Last year she was inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame.

Where once upon a time her main inspiration came from fusing Pakeha western music with traditional Maori music, she now finds synergies between music from a range of cultures. Over the decades, ‘Moana and Tribe’ have performed and learned from First Nation people in the Arctic circle (Sami) and the Borneo rainforest, as well as performing in Taiwan, Korea, Russia, Hungary and the US. In this AOTNZ tour, her activism, which she refers to as ‘artivism’, focuses on the fundamental relationship that we have with ‘moana’ - the ocean.

“Reaching back to her musical and cultural roots, Moana crafts songs destined to get feet moving, hearts feeling and minds thinking.”
