Anika Moa on Solo Tour
Anika spent much of the year touring with the likes of Neil Finn, Bic Runga and Dimmer's Shayne Carter. And in April she joined Bic Runga for a two-month stint in the UK, but now Anika Moa is back and set to charm the country with her first ever solo tour.
The nationwide tour showcases the singer/songwriter's personal and honest insight to her world and the inspiration she draws from the New Zealand landscape both political and physical.
"I'm Maori, I'm from New Zealand, and this is my sound, this is my New Zealand sound, this is how I depict New Zealand as being."
Her tour takes her from Queenstown to Keri Keri - a route well traveled while she spent two years seeking homegrown experience in preparation for her latest album "Stolen Hill". Moa describes the songs from her album as real and imbued with a sense of self and country.
