Māoriland Presents Trinity Roots

68 Main St, Otaki, Ōtaki

View map

Aotearoa has been swept up in the music of the legendary Trinity Roots - a boil-up of ingredients that seems to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea. The influences that the group bring together join the dots between head-nodding reggae, slow-burning funk and jazz adventurism to form undeniably Indigenous waiata, unconstrained by genre boxes. Since their inception, hiatus and then reformation in 2010, Trinity Roots have performed sell-out shows locally and globally, building on their reputation as a multi-award winning, platinum-selling band. ‘Māoriland Presents’ is a series of unique live performances held in the Māoriland Hub, a former department store based in Ōtaki. Designed with fans of Aoteroa’s best musicians in mind, each performance holds two sets exclusive to the one headlining artist. Each show is hosted by Māoriland, the organisation who produce the annual Māoriland Film Festival, who speak with the artist about their inspirations and motivations before each performance and allow a limited capacity audience to submerge into the artists work.

Recently signed to US Label RFL Records, Mojo Alice bring their full-on, no-frills rock show back to the Kapiti Local Scene on Saturday 15 May 2021. Who would have thought a vocalist’s barefooted stomp would cause so much chaos… Overflowing with charisma, Mojo Alice brews up a potent combination of primal rock & blues. That perfect blend of style, character & balls. This band is a force of nature live -come and see for yourself!

Charlotte Yates & Show Pony

Cnr Beach Rd and Ames St, Paekakariki

View map

To celebrate the release of her latest single/video, Car Keys, singer-songwriter Charlotte Yates is performing with her compadre & muso dynamo, Show Pony. Charlotte's edgy lyrics and idiosyncratic guitar style are well-matched with Show Pony's enviable bag of musical tricks - trumpet, violin, backing vocals and a taste of percussion - although probably not all at the same time. They'll be ably supported by special guest, Taranaki jazz-infused singer-songwriter O Juliet (keyboards/vocals). A great night of original song and talent.
