Bella Sounds Limited is proud to present Bella Kalolo’s first ever Napier concert.

Bella Kalolo is a unique artist in the New Zealand music scene, often compared to divas Aretha Franklin and Chaka Khan. Her career has seen her work with some of NZ’s top musicians including Don McGlashan, Dave Dobyn, Hollie Smith, Tina Cross, Jackie Clarke, Susan Lynch, the NZSO, Carl Doy and Nathan Haines to name a few. She has worked extensively in musical theatre both nationally and internationally and performed numerous times on television.

In 2005 Bella appeared in the NZ blockbuster hit “Sione’s Wedding” she also had a lead role in the TV2 kids show “Jandals Away”. Bella has been a lead vocalist for TVNZ’s highest rating show “Dancing with the Stars” for the last three seasons. In 2009 she performed with her band on TV 3’s “The Big Night In” and has performed numerous times on TV One’s “Good Morning”. In 2010 the New Zealand film “Matariki” will be released which will feature Bella performing a Don Mc Glashan song.

For the last two years Bella has been writing and performing her own material around Wellington. She has composed and recorded a song for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal CD “It’s a Wrap 2”, which is estimated to sell 50,000 copies.

Bella’s elegant stage presence and powerful voice has seen her wow audiences all over the world but now with her 8-piece band The Soul Symphony, she is set to rock the Cabana in her first Napier show. This will be a night of original New Zealand music of the highest quality.
