Gig Information

WAI.TAI - songlines are recreated, the sounds, harmonies and rhythms of traditional Maori songs & chants, fused with World music.

The southern-most ocean currents converge with oceans that unite all peoples. The music honours our connections. The songs are embodied by the call of the feminine voices, earthy percussions and delicate strings. The lyrics are in both Maori and English and the arrangements are a carefully crafted soundscape. Emotive, subtle and heartening. Nau mai, haere mai

SATURDAY MAY 1ST, 2021 - WAI.TAI are a Maori-World fusion collective featuring members from Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin & NP under the direction of Robyn Kamira who writes and arranges the songs and tunes in Te Reo Maori and English. They have headlined at all the major folk festivals in Aotearoa, and their first EP ‘Hoea’ has surpassed half a million plays on Spotify. WAI.TAI merges both original contemporary and traditional music from right here in Aotearoa, with music from all over the world, and infuses Te Reo Maori seamlessly into and across the music.

The line-ups vary and musicians for each concert are selected from around the country to ensure that the best mix of instruments and styles come together for the occasion. The range of iwi affiliations amongst musicians include Te Rarawa, Ngati Raukawa, Ngati Tamatera, Te Ati Awa, Ngapuhi and many more. Their international affiliations include American, English, Rarotongan, Israeli and more.

Featured in the Levin concert are Robyn Kamira, Te Auripo Kamira, Antony Royal, Ruby Mae Hinepunui Solly and Michael Muggeridge. All amazing musicians, they bring individual talents to the evening, which will be exciting in its blend of Te Reo and English.

Doors open at 7pm at Levin Folk Music Club, 155 Bartholomew Road, Levin. Light refreshments available for gold coin. Door sales are $20/$15 unwaged/GC. Lots of flat parking and easy access. Any queries - please txt Dale Webb 027 2079695.
