The Latest From Moana...

My name is Moana Tour 2019 - 4 May until 1 June 2019 (15 Apr)
" Arts on Tour" presents: "My name is Moana" - Water, ocean, moana, music – The show is an intimate 90-minute tribute to the ocean, led by celebrated singer/songwriter Moana Maniapoto, arts laureate and a 2016 inductee into the NZ Music Hall of Fame. Most recently, she has been honoured as a Distinguished Alumni 2019 of University of Auckland alongside William Pike, Dr Simon Talbot and John Bongard.

The audiences loved Moana and her fellow musicians when they toured with Arts on Tour in 2017. Now by popular acclaim Moana, Trina and Paddy are back, this time with Cadzow on electric and acoustic guitar. In ‘My name is Moana’, through a mix of music, myth and personal anecdote, we discover and share our relationship to the Ocean - and to each other. "Arts on Tour" dates are already on sale or will go soon.

Taite Prize (14 Apr)
Very honoured to have my first album TAHI acknowledged by Independent Recorded Music NZ as a NZ Classic. On Tuesday night, Cadzow, Trina and I will be joined onstage by guests Kara Gordon (guitarist) and Angus McNaughton (a producer) to perform a song off the album. Looking forward to seeing who the winners are for Debut Album and Contemporary Album.

Auckland Arts Festival (28 Feb)
Excited to perform as part of a stellar line-up at the Auckland Arts Festival on March 16 at the Auckland Town Hall.

VANUATU (12 Oct)
Heading off to Port Vila next week to perform at Fest'Napuan, rapt after many years of them trying to get us there. Pulling out all the reggae songs in our repertoire. Looking forward to learning more about the people and culture. Big thanks to MFAT for footing the bill for our tickets. We need more people in MFAT thinking about how powerful music is to build connections between NZ and other countries.
