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.
