Aro "Manu" Tour

Eggsentric Cafe, Flaxmill Bay

Sunday 24th March, 6 PM – 10 PM


Aro are setting off on their debut album release tour around the country next February to May (2019) following on from their official album release.

 

Aro's sound is distinctly Aotearoa/NZ pop, with a range of other influences including RnB, Jazz, and Kapahaka. With 20 shows booked, the pair are taking their tunes from Whangarei to Stewart Island sharing their native bird inspired project titled ‘Manu’ (bird); a bilingual - te reo Maori & English 10 track album.

 

The husband and wife duo made up of Charles and Emily Looker, have toured the country finding inspiration and discovering stories to share within the album.

 

‘Manu’ was inspired on Aro’s first nationwide tour in 2018, using the melodies, rhythms and stories of Aotearoa’s native birds, playing on their characteristics, and some of their significances for Maori to convey messages about life and identity.

 

The songs were written from their home on wheels they call ‘Jamba’. They have put together a unique tour, celebrating the release of this album and sharing the stories of our native manu with the people of Aotearoa.

 

Tickets for show only are $15 (8pm start)

Dinner and Show $45
