Fiji & Aaradhna Live

40 Days Touring and Niu FM is proud to present FIJI &AARADHNA - The King & Queen of Polynesian Music - live on the same stage over two nights in Wellington and Auckland, with special guest Sammy Johnson.

Performing in Wellington at James Cabaret on Friday 7 February, and at Auckland’s Studio on Saturday 8 February, audiences will be treated to seeing the legendary FIJI and soul songstress AARADHNA headlining a bill together for the first time, each performing their own set.

Fiji is one of the biggest Polynesian artists of our time. His golden voice and musical blends have launched him on the world stage as a pioneer of the Pacific Island Sound. A fusion of classic Reggae, Hip-Hop, R & B and Jazz sets Fiji apart as a performer. His unique style defies the idea of categorizing artists into a single genre of music,giving Fiji widespread appeal and capturing his array of musical influences. Previous albums ‘Evolution’, and ‘Born and Raised’ brought successful unique island-style to the mainstream, launching Fiji as the one of the most recognized Polynesian artist in the world.

Aaradhna returns to New Zealand to perform after a hugely successful year, including a record-breaking win of six awards from the 2013 Pacific Music Awards, three New Zealand Music Awards (including the highly coveted ‘Album of the Year’ for her critically acclaimed Treble & Reverb), finalist for the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll and Taite Music Prizes, as well as a string of tours across the USA.

Fiji and Aaradhna will be joined by newDawn Raid Entertainment signing, Sammy Johnson, fresh from performances in Las Vegas.

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
