A ground-breaking live performance led by music and sound producer Anonymouz, 4 THA LUMANA’I finds the parallels between traditional Sāmoan customs and contemporary Hip Hop lyricism. Backed by compelling video projection, a cast of local Sāmoan tulāfale orator chiefs join rappers, poets and community performers for a living conversation between the past, present and future.
4 THA LUMANAI'I is part of Auckland Arts Festival's Whānui programme. Whānui is a celebration of Tāmaki Makaurau and our creative neighbourhoods. For 2018 the Whānui theme is creative inter-generational conversations: where older and younger people interact, create, share and learn from each other with five events taking place across the Auckland region.
