kNOw Hope - Amorangi

PRESS RELEASE

French-based music ian Amorangi, who hails from the North Island’s East Coast, returns to New Zealand this summer for a rare tour, including performances at the Wellington Fringe Festival.

Although Phyllis (Ngati Porou) was born in Te Puia Springs, Amorangi was born in Toulon, South of France, in 2010. Since testing her songs at a local mic session, Amorangi has played many of the top venues in the local region as well as summer festivals including Artefada Marseille 2011, Le Lavandou , Musique et Cigalous La Ciotat 2012, Nuits du Sud Vence 2013. She released her first indie album Know Hope in 2012.

She describes her sound as “positive acoustic or world folk” - folk foundations embraced by rhythms ranging from blues and reggae to latino and afro. Lyrics follow “themes of the environments we create internally and externally”.

From January Amorangi starts her back-to- roots tour travelling between Whangarei and Queenstown and all points between. Although an experienced performer in France, this will be her first time performing in her home country. She will be presenting her show and album Know Hope at the Wellington Fringe Festival, as well as at other events in Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin

Know Hope travels through eclectic horizons, enticing and drawing the listener on a voyage with hope as the final destination”.

Before Amorangi, Phyllis accumulated a multitude of experiences living and working in various countries - managing a chalet in the French Alps, selling art in London, and learning to snow board on an Italian glacier while working in a Swiss restaurant.

Family years followed when she settled down with her French partner in Toulon. She returned to Wellington briefly in 2004 for teacher training at Capital Language Academy.

Now she’s on a new voyage with music bringing her again to Wellington. Amorangi is proof that we don’t necessarily have to reincarnate to lead many fulfilling lives in one. Her motto is, “follow your dream and be conscious of the season you’re in”.

Amorangi performs in Wellington at the free/koha shows at Scotty and Mal’s on 27 and 28 February as well as at an Alliance Francaise Wellington show on 1 March.
