Pioneers of NZ music, King Kapisi and The Nomad.

With King Kapisi recording a new album these is going to be plenty of fresh new beats as well as some old favourites in the mix.

The Nomad is a name we all know in NZ electronica, and on his return to NBS Theatre, will be playing an old school Nomad set.

Nomad: a member of a people or tribe who move from place to place; vagabond; wanderer; one who roams.

Roaming the globe cruising the road less travelled, The Nomad makes music that pushes the boundaries and combines a unique blend of reggae, dubstep, drum & bass and electronica. For Daimon Schwalger, a.k.a. The Nomad, the wandering existence has been all about building strong connections with people and places. He shares the story of his journey through the creation and celebration of independent music. Having spent over two decades behind both the decks and at the controls, Daimon is now the master of his own production studios, The Nomad Music. With an alluring mix of musical talent, he’s released six diverse and discerning albums to date.

King Kapisi: Samoan artist King Kapisi, a.k.a. Bill Urale, was the first Polynesian hip-hop artist to receive the prestigious Australiasian Performing Rights Association (APRA) Silver Scroll.

Already in 2012, Kapisi has completed a 30 day tour on the road including SXSW in Austin Texas for the second time, Babel Med Festival in Marseille, France and a fundraiser for Kiwi Paralympic Gold Medalist, Nathan Smith in London, England. The year will also see the release of his fourth album, Hip Hop Lives Here, featuring Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples), Monsta Ganjah, Che Fu, Bunny Rugs (Third World), Tha Feelstyle, Uptown Swuite, Luciano, Thaitanium, The Mint Chicks and Teremoana Rapley.
