Performing in Wellington at James Cabaret on Friday 7 February, and at Auckland’s Studio on Saturday 8 February, audiences will be treated to seeing the legendary FIJI and soul songstress AARADHNA headlining a bill together for the first time, each performing their own set.
Fiji is one of the biggest Polynesian artists of our time. His golden voice and musical blends have launched him on the world stage as a pioneer of the Pacific Island Sound. A fusion of classic Reggae, Hip-Hop, R & B and Jazz sets Fiji apart as a performer. His unique style defies the idea of categorizing artists into a single genre of music,giving Fiji widespread appeal and capturing his array of musical influences. Previous albums ‘Evolution’, and ‘Born and Raised’ brought successful unique island-style to the mainstream, launching Fiji as the one of the most recognized Polynesian artist in the world.
Aaradhna returns to New Zealand to perform after a hugely successful year, including a record-breaking win of six awards from the 2013 Pacific Music Awards, three New Zealand Music Awards (including the highly coveted ‘Album of the Year’ for her critically acclaimed Treble & Reverb), finalist for the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll and Taite Music Prizes, as well as a string of tours across the USA.
Fiji and Aaradhna will be joined by newDawn Raid Entertainment signing, Sammy Johnson, fresh from performances in Las Vegas.
