Aro - Manu Album Release Tour



Tour Information
Aro are setting off on their debut album release tour around the country from February to May 2019, following their official album release on Feb 15th. Aro's sound is distinctly Aotearoa/NZ pop, with a range of other influences including RnB, Jazz, and Kapahaka. With 20 shows booked, the pair are taking their tunes from Whangarei to Rakiura/Stewart Island sharing their native bird inspired project titled ‘Manu’ (bird); a bilingual - te reo Māori & English 10 track album. The husband and wife duo, Charles and Emily (Rice) Looker, have toured the country finding inspiration and discovering stories to share within the album.

‘Manu’ was inspired, on Aro’s first nationwide tour in 2018, by the melodies, rhythms and stories of Aotearoa’s native birds, and plays on their characteristics and some of their significances for Māori to convey messages about life and identity. The songs were written from their home on wheels they call ‘Jamba’. They have put together a unique tour, celebrating the release of this album and sharing the stories of our native manu with the people of Aotearoa.

Manu Berry is a Dunedin Screen Print artist who Aro met on their first nationwide tour in 2018. Manu has been working with Aro creating beautiful woodcut prints of each of the birds on Aro's album. This will be a special show where the music is performed with the artwork from Manu Berry surrounding them and all the listeners at this show.
