MUSIC : ART : MAHI

With electronic beats, organic percussion, live guitars and deep harmonies, Huia’s set is a richly layered big bass sound with conscious lyrics in both te reo Māori and touches of english. Huia is an award winning artist from Aotearoa NZ.

 

Producing both solo and collaboratively, her music flows from ambient liquid DnB with Baitercell, through to reggaeton bangers, Huia has a vibrant and friendly stage presence. Huia also loves to do small intimate whānau gatherings sharing her tamariki songs.  LISTEN HERE
