Besides, the DELICIOUS food and the purpose of the event being Maori and pacific island unity... Maisey Rika was the highlight of my 2010 Pasifika Festival experience =] She has a beautiful voice not to mention she is Maori.. HA! Yes, i'm a lil bias obviously..lol.
I could'nt find the songs that she sung at Pasifika but i found these..
Her earthy sound reminds me of other NZ singers i like......
My older sisters friend Anika Moa =]]] she's Maori too HA!
and then lastly Bic Runga.....
and yes! you guessed it she's Maori too! lol ... half Maori and half Malaysian.. i met her and her sister Boh a few years back .... and "Drive" was one of the first songs i ever learnt on the guitar when i was ten =]]
Okay i'm done. Byee
