Kora announced as headline act for Music in Parks
7 January 2014
The special headline act for this year’s Music in Parks has just been announced as platinum selling band Kora.
The just-confirmed act will be included in the Music in Parks line-up at Henderson Park on Thursday 6 February from 2pm to 6pm.
One of New Zealand’s most electric and sonically powerful live bands, Kora has a unique style that masterfully connects the dots between funk, rock, reggae, metal, hip hop and electronic rhythms.
Cr. Alf Filipaina, Arts, Culture and Events Committee Chair says it is a thrill to be able to add Kora to the afternoon event.
“This is a huge bonus to the day’s line-up. We only just got confirmation and I know there are heaps of fans out there that will be keen to come along and enjoy Kora live,” he says.
Kora joins soul songstress Tyra Hammond, whose powerful voice delivers a distinctive original sound of soul, hip hop and old school R&B influences and band Funkommunity with their futuristically classic sound, distinctive blend of funky drum rhythms and soulful synthesizers.
Music in Parks runs from Saturday 11 January 2014 until Saturday 22 March 2014 and features more than 70 musical acts across Auckland.
Who: Kora, Tyra Hammond and Funkommunity
