Samara Alofa Performs 'B.T.T.G' - UTR Trash Recital

We're thrilled to share the fourth episode of UTR presents Trash Recital Season 2 — starring Samara Alofa, produced by Sports Team and made with support from NZ On Air!

For each episode of Trash Recital we've invited some of our favourite Aotearoa artists into the UTR studios to perform one of their signature songs, re-created using everyday items selected from Sports Team's stockpile of recycled junk. Trash Recital not only provides a launchpad for stunning reimaginings of recent classic tunes, but also the perfect opportunity for a chinwag with our local musical heroes.

Today's episode of TR stars the wonderful Samara Alofa (Ngāti Awa) and their supergroup live band of fellow Tāmaki-based artists: Abigail Aroha Jensen, Matt Hunter (Kenny Sterling), Dylan Cook and Navakatoa Tekela-Pule (Schofield Strangelove), plus Trash Recital sound engineer Ruby Walsh (Dateline) who expertly hat-switches between producer and band member throughout. In one of our most thrilling episodes yet, the five-to-six-person group breaks all the rules in their journey to recreate the ethereal soundscape and harmonies of Samara Alofa's 'B.T.T.G'. From uncovering some never-before-seen trash, to recitalist Navakatoa Tekela-Pule completely obliterating the fourth wall as he steps behind the camera, you'll be on the edge of your seat from the moment you hit play.

You can catch Samara Alofa live at the Eastern Women’s Refuge Fundraiser July 9th.
