My name is Moana – AOTNZ tour April –May 2017

My name is Moana – AOTNZ tour April –May 2017

Celebrated singer songwriter Moana Maniapoto is joined by her sister Trina, Pitch Black’s Paddy Free and Karlos Tunks Saunders in a heartfelt tribute to ‘moana’- the ocean - in ‘My Name is Moana’.

In 2016, Art Laureate Moana was inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame. She and Paddy Free have just returned from performing concerts 800 km inside the Arctic Circle. The pair are now recording for her 6th album ONO, which features collaborations with six other women from different nations.

Over the decades, ‘Moana and Tribe’ have played in great cities like Venice, Shanghai, Istanbul and Moscow, in rainforests, castles, clubs and even the Sydney Opera House twice.

In this AOTNZ tour, Moana combines the art of songwriting with storytelling to focus on the fundamental relationship that we all have with ‘moana’ - the ocean. With plenty of song, lots of harmonies and a few tall tales, it promises to be an intimate, entertaining and compelling night.

“Reaching back to her musical and cultural roots, Moana crafts songs destined to get feet moving, hearts feeling and minds thinking.”
