Luke Buda Plays 'BUDA' Tour Announced with Anita Clark

Spotted pulling up outside the Taite Music Prize ceremony in a Rolls Royce on Sunday, finalist Luke Buda (Lukasz Pawel Buda) has announced a four date nationwide tour with violinist Anita Clark (Motte), performing songs from his new solo album BUDA in July. A long time coming, overcoming significant hurdles thrown in the Te Whanganui-a-Tara songwriter's direction due to the global pandemic (and resultant stop / start restrictions on live shows), gig-goers can look forward to stripped-back versions of tunes from his acclaimed 2021 record, some faves from his bountiful back catalogue with The Phoenix Foundation, plus "if the mood is right: a Roxette cover."

"After several Covid related setbacks it is finally happening... Hear the songs from “Buda” played by Buda (with Anita Clark) in a stripped back setting. Come and bear witness to a man singing about his lack of fitness, and his inability to keep on top of day to day life admin, while swimming in a pool of reverb and gratuitous delay. Float away on a gentle cloud of spaced out violin and dreamy synths."

Press release:

“Since the release of his 2022 Taite Music Prize nominated album “Buda” in October last year, Luke Buda (Te Whanganui-a-Tara) has been desperate to play some sweet local music for the local crew down at the local bar! After several Covid related setbacks it is finally happening.

Luke Buda and Ōtautahi Violinist Anita Clark (Motte) head out on an intimate 4 date tour to play the songs from “Buda”, as well as some old The Phoenix Foundation favourites and… if the mood is right: a Roxette cover. Hear the songs from “Buda” played by Buda (with Anita Clark) in a stripped back setting. Come and bear witness to a man singing about his lack of fitness, and his inability to keep on top of day to day life admin, while swimming in a pool of reverb and gratuitous delay. Float away on a gentle cloud of spaced out violin and dreamy synths.
