Back in the day, when it was 3am and the last bus had gone, the 24-hour burger joint in Cathedral Squre — aka: The Dog House — was the final stop before heading home; a place as familiar to Pacific Underground as Otākaro, the Avon River.
Fast forward 25-years, for the jam of all jams! Yup, Pacific Underground are bringing the whānau back together to celebrate their ground-breaking legacy of giving Pacific communities a voice through music, drama and the arts.
Led by Pos Mavaega alongside core members Tanya Muagututi'a and Chris Searle, special guests will include Steve Apirana, Joe Tamaira, Dallas Tamaira (of Fat Freddys Drop), Karoline Tamati and Brent Park (Ladi 6 & Parks), Mara TK, Mark Vanilau, Sarah Tamaira (Voodoo Child) and Richie Mills (DJ Pause). Wahaaay!
This is a tribute to urban roots, local icons and the underground sound that nurtured so many of Aotearoa's brightest Pasifika gems.
