Sunday 20 January 2008

North Hagley Park, Christchurch

Reclaiming the central city for an afternoon of live music excellence, a collection of this country’s top live performers are set to deliver their best, freshest and most loved tunes in the serene surrounds of North Hagley Park. This is an afternoon that promises to make Sounday your new favourite day of the year.

Featuring…. Shapeshifter
Shapeshifter are unquestionably awesome. Just ask someone who was part of the capacity crowd at the Town Hall, in September 2006 when they appeared with the Christchurch Symphony, or talk to any one of the 12,000 people who let it all go at Cheap as Chips 2007. Shapeshifter are returning to their home town to deliver their signature live blend of Drum & Bass, Electro, Jazz and Soul on the back of a hugely successful international tour. Sounday will be the ultimate homecoming. Chur chur for Shapeshifter at home in Hagley Park.

Also with her roots in Christchurch, Ladi6 (Karoline Tamati) is the soulful voice behind the hit ‘When I return’ (Shapeshifter). One of New Zealand’s premiere female vocalists, Ladi6 has worked on some of the most memorable kiwi tracks of late, with our country’s top music- makers including Fat Freddys Drop, Scribe, 50hz and of course, Shapeshifter. Keep your ears peeled for Ladi6’s debut album, out in January.

Hot on the heels of his debut album release, this former soundman and voice of the multi- award winning group Salmonella Dub is stepping up and mesmerizing audiences with his impressive solo act. Catch this New Zealand music leader live and outdoors, in his hometown of Christchurch.
