Rising star to sing for the Coromandel

Rising star to sing for the Coromandel

One of New Zealand’s rising stars on the music scene Estère, is playing at a fundraising event next Thursday for a Coromandel community group working to stop gold mining.

The fundraiser is at Revelry, 106 Ponsonby Road, doors opening at 7pm on Thursday 3rd September.

The group, Coromandel Watchdog, has been going for over 35 years and says gold mining threatens the health and beauty of the lands and waters of the Coromandel, the very things that make it such a wonderful place to live and visit.

Estère, whose pulsating rhythms and evocative melodies she calls Electric Blue Witch Hop are taking her all over the globe, says “New Zealand is extremely precious and the only way to protect it is to fight against its exploitation.”

“Watchdog in the Coromandel has been setting an example for all of us, by defending the glorious natural landscapes of the Coromandel against the toxic gold mining industry. I'm 100% behind them- go Watchdog!”

The night will also include performances from other accomplished musicians and Djs, including Sunny Ray, R.I.A and Chica Licorica.

Tickets are $20 and can be found on eventbrite.co.nz or brought on the door.

You can go to the group’s Facebook page ‘Coromandel Watchdog of Hauraki’ to find out more about the concert and campaign.
