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

KAHUNGUNU MARANGA (2017 8 track CD - 2016 3 track EPToni 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. NZ Musician Magazine.
