RIMA is the 5th major album from Moana and was co-written and produced by Paddy Free (Pitch Black, Nga Tae, Moana & the Tribe). Just back from Scotland, Moana & the Tribe is a band itching to show off their new Dub-soul-Haka grooves repertoire.

And the Galatos on Sunday, Sept 28 will be the place to catch the band described by the NZ Herald as a ‘main stage standout’ at Womad NZ. Put it down to drummer Micky Ututaonga in collusion with dubster Paddy Free - it’s an edgier, more energetic pulse driving the female harmonies and haka. This is kaupapa-driven, NZ roots music like no other.

RIMA is all about exploring and celebrating people power. From ‘Warrior Woman’ to ‘Whole Worlds Watching’ to ‘Upokohue,’ to House of Strife (with guest artist Don McGlashan), Moana & the Tribe will be playing their entire album for the first time.

Join Moana & the Tribe at the Galatos on Sunday, September 28. Before and after they play, Moana will introduce two rising stars she’s keeping her eye on. Catch popular young reggae band Ihi at 6pm just before Moana & the Tribe. Then T.K, the young man with the smooth voice will finish the night.

IHI is a young reggae band whose founders met through Nga Tauira Maori at Auckland University. Now the duo of vocalist Thomas Rawiri (Ngapuhi, Tainui) and guitarist Mokoia Huata (Ngati Kahungunu) has morphed into a 6 piece band working towards their 1st release this summer. And Kimiora Jackson, (Ngati Porou, Tuwharetoa, Te Arawa) their student president at the time, is managing them.

T.K is a 20 year old with the voice of a 40 year old, the kind that stops you in your tracks. Crafting his original songs and being mentored by the likes of Warren Maxwell and Tama Waipara, Te Karehana Gardiner-Toi is one to watch.
