THE MAMAKU PROJECT (France/NZ)
The Mamaku Project was born of the meeting of two French-Kiwis: evocative bi-lingual vocalist Tui Mamaki and multi-instrumentalist/producer Monsieur E. In February 2014, they released their third album Twigs of Gold.
“ Wild flavours of French Cabaret flirt with the pulse of Electro-Oriental-Jazz. An intoxicating affair of multi-lingual noir poetry, conjuring Balkan dance floors, spiced with a sprinkling of circus…”
SAL VALENTINE & The BABYSHAKES (New Zealand)
Widely regarded as one of the finest live acts in the country, Sal Valentine & The Babyshakes have twisted the fabric of musical time and lived to deliver you a curated selection of infectious and original rhythm and blues.
With the energy of the live performance frontman and songwriter Sal Valentine framed by the 'Auckland's Number 1 Band' the Babyshakes, will get you up and dancing. Get ready to boogie !
VANUELLA WATT (New Caledonia)
This beautiful exotic singer from New Caledonia fascinates the public by her warm and natural personality. Vanuella Watt embodies the modern image of New Caledonian music so well that she was nicknamed La Diva du Pacifique.
She will perform her Tribute to la Môme (Edith Piaf) as well as other songs from the French repertoire, both modern and more traditional take on the "chanson française".
