Featuring Whirimako Black with Allana Goldsmith, Leon Wharekura, and Dixon Nacey.

Opening the Festival with class and style, one of the most distinctive soul singers of Aotearoa graces Tāmaki Makaurau alongside a lineup of top vocalists and musicians for one night only.

After a sold-out headline performance at the Wellington Jazz Festival in 2021, multi-award-winner Whirimako Black (MNZM) (Ngāi Tūhoe) brings her “spirit, passion, confidence” (Scoop) with dynamic performance energy and dulcet tones, performing original material as well as jazz standards in both te reo Māori and English. Joining this legend onstage are bilingual vocal stars Allana Goldsmith (Ngāti Porou, Ngāi Tai ki Tōrere) and Leon Wharekura (Ngaati Mahuta, Ngaati Whaawhaakia, Waikato) with Dixon Nacey (Mangaia, Rarotonga), musical director extraordinaire. Rich and versatile sounds of soul, jazz, and more abound in this not-to-be-missed music spectacular.

Ka taiea, ka huatau anō te whakatuwheratanga o te hui Ahurei, i tētahi o ngā kaiwaiata kōmanawa motuhake katoa o Aotearoa ka tū ki Tāmaki Makaurau me ōna hoa waiata, ringapuoro rangatira anō mō tētahi pō kotahi noa.

Whai muri iho i tana tū ki te tūranga kaiwaiata matua i te hui Ahurei Tautito o Pōneke i te tau 2021, he tū i pau katoa ai ngā tīkiti, ka rangona “te wairua, te ngākau whiwhita me te māia” (Scoop) o te toa-taumata-rau, o Whirimako Black (MNZM) (Ngāi Tūhoe), otirā, te hihiri o tana tū waiata me te rōreka o tōna reo. Ka waiatahia e ia ko āna ake titonga, ā, ko ētahi tino waiata tautito anō, i te reo Māori me te reo Pākehā. Hei hoa mō tēnei toki ki te atamira ko ngā whetū waiata reorua, ko Allana Goldsmith (Ngāti Porou, Ngāi Tai ki Tōrere) rāua ko Leon Wharekura (Ngaati Mahuta, Ngaati Whaawhaakia, Waikato), otirā, ko te ringatohu puoro inati, ko Dixon Nacey (Mangaia, Rarotonga). He haukai mā te taringa ngā tangi kōmanawa, tautito, ā, me te maha atu anō, otirā, he huarau, he ororau, me te aha, me kai ō taringa ka tika.
