Aotearoa has been swept up in the music of TrinityRoots - a boil-up of ingredients that seems to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea. The influences that the group bring together join the dots between head-nodding reggae, slow-burning funk and jazz adventurism to form undeniably indigenous waiata, unconstrained by genre boxes. Since their inception, hiatus and then reformation in 2010, TrinityRoots have performed sell-out shows locally and globally, building on their reputation as a multi-award winning, platinum selling band.
‘Maoriland Presents’ is a series of unique live performances held in the Maoriland Hub, a former department store based in Otaki. Designed with fans of Aoteroa’s best musicians in mind, each performance holds two sets exclusive to the one headlining artist. Each show is hosted by Maoriland, the organisation who produce the annual Maoriland Film Festival, who speak with the artist about their inspirations and motivations before each performance and allow a limited capacity audience to submerge into the artists work.
