Rafters Music Club
Held at The Unitarian Church 1a Ponsonby Road
at 8pm on the second Friday this month (due to Easter)
Our guest for Friday April 12th will be:
This club night we welcome ROBYN KAMIRA (TRIBAL AFFILIATION: TE RARAWA). Robyn is the Musical director of the Maori and World band WAI.TAI. She was taught by Hirini Melbourne, a well-respected Maori academic and musician, who was instrumental in restoring the knowledge relating to taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments) and ancient knowledge through song. She brings an intimate performance to Rafters that captures Hirini’s influences alongside some more exploratory music from around the world. Those who have heard Robyn both here at Rafters and at folk festivals, will be queuing at the door to hear more.Those of you who haven't heard her before are in for a real musical treat.
The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guest/s. We welcome new performers. See Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there before the 8pm start.
