Gig Information

‘Matariki Starlight Jazz Concert’ is being presented as part of Auckland’s Matariki Festival 2018 programme of events. Its purpose is to be a ‘kick-start’ fundraising event towards supporting the ‘bigger picture’ cause – the ‘™Wahine Walk for Wellness – Footsteps supporting the ripple effects of mental wellness’ Project: a walk for our Nation designed to help raise funds to further support existing, or to create new support networks within Communities that enable the ‘Caretakers’ of the mentally unwell to reach out and connect, draw strength from, and support others who are walking a similar journey.

Matariki Starlight Jazz Concert blends both Pakeha and Māori artists together in an exciting program of music sung in Te Reo Māori and English. Every musician featured in the concert has donated their time for the cause. Each has their own experience related to mental un-wellness to some degree.

She is an award winning songwriter and artist having achieved Best Māori Album and Best Jazz Album at the NZ Music Awards and a coveted Silver Scroll award in song writing for Best Māori Composition.
