Trailblazing emerging artist, Arahi announces his debut ‘There’s Nothing Like It - Piano Tour’ 2022.
Those in the know will know an Arahi show is much more than mere music. Arahi creates immersive experiences to speak to your tender soul and linger round the corners of your mind long after he’s skipped town. This latest offering is a chance for you to grasp at an elusive moment in time, an intimate audience with the man and his piano.
In collaboration with Undergrand, Arahi comes to the stage paired back, pouring heart and soul over the keys of this exquisite snow white baby grand piano. This show promises a delicate and insightful look at Arahi, his songs and their many facets. In his words, “it’s a chance to really get to know the songs and the meaning behind them, because we’re in such an intimate setting, which doesn’t happen too often.”
With a reputation for being a bona fide artistic soul, presented as a master of his craft, Arahi juxtaposes classic and contemporary sound with an eclectic, eccentric style. Arahi calls on theatrics and grandiose displays of sound and vision, meticulously crafted, together with a flair for showmanship, constantly pushing the boundaries of Indie music.
Arahi released ‘The Best Thing I’ve Ever Seen’ a blissful, hazy tune, in April, which as Arahi aptly sums up, feels “like a red hot 80s sun setting on roller-skating silhouettes along a golden boulevard.” The track was released with a bonus B-side - a mesmerizing dance remix of Arahi’s 2020 single ‘Searching In The Sun’.
Arahi will release new single ‘There’s Nothing Like It’ this Matariki, which breezes past your ears to the depths of your soul like a long-awaited exhale. This sound is a chance for people to relinquish themselves of the weight on their shoulders, really dive into the music and allow themselves to believe that some things can’t be explained in words.
Arahi recently played alongside iconic NZ artists; The Veils, Bic Runga, Nadia Reid to a sold out audience at Auckland Stadium's Lilypad concert. Arahi is looking forward to connecting and creating memorable live experiences with his fans in six different regions of Aotearoa this winter.
