Rika ,MaiseyTohu


Maori singer/songwriter Maisey Rika, has one of Aotearoa's most impressive lead vocal styles.Her spine tingling vocals and fusion of English and Te Reo lyrics are capturing hearts both in New Zealand and abroad.
 Since the age of 13, Maisey has been singing on stage and in the studio at a professional level. Maisey’s first recordings brought her to stardom with “E Hine”, a classic collection of Maori traditional songs. “E Hine” went double platinum and also won “Best Maori Language Album” at the New Zealand Music Awards. Maisey was also nominated for “Best Female Vocalist” in 1998 at just 15 years old. Maisey, in her 20's released an EP earlier in 2009 that charted in the NZTOP40 album charts and now releases her much anticipated debut album "Tohu". Maisey and guitarist J.J Rika have worked to create an original melodic experience backed with strong eclectic messages. A mix of folk, acoustic, soul and easy listening, their musical palette is vibrant with elements of roots and deep culture.
  “Tohu” is filled with the touching tales and the universal emotions of hardship, happiness, love, justice and sorrow we can all relate to. The ancestral sounds of traditional Maori instruments have been used along side guitars, drums, etc.
