We had so much fun being part of such a glorious, family-friendly day of food, stalls and entertainment. The community spirit of so many bright and beautiful people was absolutely fabulous. Big ups to Dani and her crew from the Community Centre for an amazing day. Thanks to Tommy Etuata too for capturing all that community goodness in this video as we drummed and danced in the heart of Aro Valley.

A beautiful day, at a beautiful Wellington community event – what could be better? We were thrilled to be asked to open for the famous ArOlympics this year. It was our pleasure!

I just wanted to acknowledge you all and thank you for such an amazing performance at Aro Fair on Saturday 13th.

The energy you brought to the event, rhythm and the beautiful positive vibe really made a difference. And seeing you all engage with the ArOlympics games and crew was priceless!

Thank you all for your mahi, bringing joy to people with your music and dance!
