Te Vaka

Te VakaFrom New Zealand

"...forceful rhythms, inspired melodies... stereotype-smashing glimpse into the true soul of the South Seas..." Wired, USA

Tribal and powerful, rootsy yet melodiceric. the fusion music of this unique group of twelve musicians and dancers is inspired by the Pacific Islands. Members from all over the South Pacific - including Tokelau, Tuvalu, Samoa and the Cook Islands – bring their own Island flavours to the red-hot music and dance of this internationally-acclaimed company. Te Vaka has built up a huge international following in this region and beyond - as the UK's Evening Standard said, "Te Vaka are New Zealand's hottest export after lamb chops." This is your chance to see why.
