Tangi Reka Music Awards

Tangi Reka Music Awards

Preparations for the inaugural Tangi Reka Music Awards are in full swing and the public are urged to make nominations for their favourite singer, musician, band and composer.

The Tangi Reka Arts and Cultural Trust recently announced that nominations for the awards are open till 5pm on Friday 4th July 2014, giving the public around 6 weeks to get their nominations in.

The Awards take place on Saturday 11th October in Auckland, and will recognise and celebrate icons of Cook Islands music both past and present.

Project Leader Noo Pare expects a huge number of nominations will be made. “This is a first” says Mr Pare “ Never before have we honoured those people who have contributed to the growth and development of Cook Islands music, and over the last 50 years we have seen some great performers, composers, and producers, come and go – it is time to recognise them and show them the respect that they deserve”.

He also says that the Awards are special because the focus is not on competition. “We want people to understand that these are recognition awards” says Mr Pare “It isn’t about choosing who is best, it is about honouring anyone who has shared their talent and made an impact on Cook Islands music as a whole”.

Cook Islanders will be celebrated over 16 categories that night.

1. Cook Islands Male Artist Award

2. Cook Islands Female Artist Award

3. Cook Islands Musician Award

4. Cook Islands String Band Award
