Launched last Friday during Aotearoa's first official Matariki holiday weekend, Troy Kingi (Te Arawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui) has unveiled Pū Whenua Hautapu, Eka Mumura, a new reworked te reo Māori version of his 2020 Taite Music Prize winning album Holy Colony Burning Acres. Described by Kingi over on Instagram as "Holy Colony on steroids," he explained the original record "has been completely translated and re-mixed taking it I feel into a completely different stratosphere!!!" —and also clarified Pū Whenua Hautapu, Eka Mumura exists outside of his monumentally ambitious 10 10 10 (ten albums, ten genres, ten years) project. Teasing news of a free Wellington performance of the politically charged, dub-infused long player with band in the coming weeks, listen up to Pū Whenua Hautapu, Eka Mumura, head over to Kingi's Bandcamp page for more info on the project HERE and hit play on the video for 'Ka Tipu' below...

'Pū Whenua Hautapu, Eka Mumura' is out now digitally and on limited edition vinyl LP via Troy Kingi's Bandcamp page HERE.
