Gig Information

3 night residency
Night 3 - Sat 26/6

+ Noa Records collaboration with Riki Gooch, Cory Champion and Daniel Beban.

Spanning Samoan post-punk to psychedelic improvised music, Noa Records is a creative vessel and emerging collective voice expressed as a record label, media archive and creative whānau.

LEAO pays homage to the matai name ‘Leao’ (translated as ‘The Day’), which is a prestigious ali’i title held in the village of Lalomauga, the matriarchal village of David Feauai-Afaese.
Journeying themes of rediscovery and reconnection that is grounded in fa’aaloalo, a term meaning ‘to act with the many faces’, nurture the space of feeling outsider to one’s own culture and acknowledges the ever-present energy of ancestral resonance. These themes channel into a sonic-va'a that is new in it's fashion, but eternal in it's oceanic intentions. In bridging traditional perceptions of fa’asamoa and unconventional forms of pasifika music, LEAO hopes to shine light on not only the flowering possibilities of creative forms but also on the forgotten homes we are all rooted in and allowing them to share life with and through each other.

STRANGELOVE is the creative moniker of Auckland-based Nāvakatoa Tekela-Pule, a romantic soul with a knack for poetic-songwriting and an eclectic approach towards song production; jumping effortlessly between realms of sixties R&B, G-Funk, Surf-Rock and Crooning-Ballads. STRANGELOVE brings a lighthearted + innocent presence to the stage that is comfortably entertaining and a slew of songs that will make your heart melt.
