Henika is an Auckland-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer touring her latest album Strange Creatures made from native birdsong. The birds act as her band with Tui on beats, Kakapo on bass, Kokako on harmony and Korimako on melodic hooks. The genres span from altpop to jazz to hiphop, all tied together by birdsong and the message of conservation. Henika's live show is quirky, fun and colourful. She accompanies the birds with live instruments such as the slide guitar, double bass and theremin. See unusual costumes with paper mache bird heads and hear stories about her encounters with the birds while recording on Tiritiri Matangi Island.
Celestial synth-duo Vox Venus make music from the inner realms of outer space. Inventive rhythms, magical hooks and mind-altering vintage synths come together to transport listeners to new dimensions of sound
ISLA & Good Thieves
Indie artist Isla uses her love of words, impressive vocal range and self-deprecating nature to create music that reminds you you’re not the only awkward human on this planet. Walking the tightrope between folk, pop and rock, her songs feature complex vocal harmonies and varied instrumentation. With the help of her band ‘Good Thieves’ she delivers a dynamic show.
