Soljah & King Kapisi Announce Clash of the Titans Tour

The Music Agency & Mai Fm is proud to present the Clash of the Titans Tour, featuring Soljah and King Kapisi.

Soljah is made up of four heavy weight musicians who are creating waves across Aotearoa with their mesmerising live performances and ground stomping sound. Heavy distorted riffs with rhythms that knock you off your feet. Bouncy drum and bass to put you back on your feet, and tight vocal harmonies that drip with catchy melodies.

This tour follows the release of their highly anticipated album ‘AOTEAROA’ which included the singles ‘Aotearoa’, ‘Summer Time’ & ‘Message’. ‘AOTEAROA’ was nominated for best roots album at the 2013 NZ Music awards and everyone gets a free copy of the album on entry to the show!

Kapisi has just released ‘Down with the King’, his seventh single and video release off the forthcoming album, ‘HIP-HOP LIVES HERE’.
