Kahungunu Maranga - Toni's 6th Album and home favourite!

Kahungunu_Maranga_CD.jpg_WEB.jpg

KAHUNGUNU MARANGA (2017 8 track CD - 2016 3 track EP) Toni Huata has nailed what is good in
music. Sing what you know, blend it in with the right instruments and harmonies, but most importantly,
when you sing from your roots your message transcends beyond what you could ever imagine”. The
warmth of each song lifts any negativity from the air. The title track
Kahungunu Maranga is originally
credited to have been written by Huata’s grandfather. Odes to tipuna, whānau and iwi. Each song firmly
holds the roots of these pillars in the jazz-country-swing styled writing. Different to other albums of
Huata’s as she explores tradition in this smaller set as opposed to her often more vast creations. A light
refreshing that celebrates history and reminds us of how important it is to keep tradition and culture as
precious memories and never forget them.

TOMOKIA - Chart topping album for Toni Huata

Toni_Huata_-_Tomokia_Album_of_the_week_-_Amplifier.jpg

 

TOMOKIA (2014) Dance, Dub, World, Soul. 'Tomokia' is Toni Huata's fifth album, another chart topper
and her second in the dub/electronica genre, made in collaboration with celebrated Piha
musician/producer Paddy Free of Pitch Black fame. According to Paddy, Toni Huata has always been
adventurous in exploring new styles and genres of music - "which is testament to her huge vocal skills in
soul, R'n'B, pop, haka … you name it, she can sing it! "On the new album, she branches out into
everything from dance-pop and moody, deep dub tracks through to ambient 'tone poems', strum-along
ballads and feel-good reggae. If the last album was a new direction, then this one furthers that
exploration along many diverse paths." 'Tomokia' represents accomplishment, completion and bravery
with the concept originating from an ancestral proverb: 'E rere e te huata hopukia, e rere e te manuka
tomokia'.
