Marama La Luna - a tribute to our beautiful moon moon, inspiring us since forever! This new Reggaeton waiata (song) from Huia ‘Marama La Luna’ (Moon Moon) was scribed when the blood moon eclipse was over Aotearoa. The song is both soothing and mysterious, dark but super starry and sparkly as well! Produced by Huia, with music additions from Rei and polished to perfection by Chris Chetland at Kog Studio, ‘Marama La Luna’ is bea...
As one of Aotearoa's only te reo Māori DnB world music vocalists, the release of 'Marama La Luna' marks 11 years since her first te reo Māori release. This was celebrated with a solo set at Rozella Presents, Red Lounge sessions with Matt Rapid, Paige Julia, and Mystic Roots. Huia released 2 new tunes, 'Kanikani' and 'Makereti', in 2019, and 2018 saw her release her EP Āio.

The lead single 'Āio' from the EP hit #16 on the NZ Hot Singles Charts in the first week and was the only Te Reo Māori single in the top 20. Huia's back catalogue is playlisted all around the world, from France, in the Highlands of Scotland, to Melbourne and Waiheke Island. Huia has 2 singles on the 'TOKA EP' by Baitercell, 'Hine Ruru' and 'Te Wai Te Ora', which were both openly praised for being DnB te reo Māori tunes that have mass appeal. It even featured on George FM's website for Matariki and online on the Te Ao show (160,000+ reach). Huia is an award-winning producer and has a new album in the works, which will be mainly in English and will be a lot of tunes she has written over the years that need to be released!

"Āio itself is an absolute breath of fresh air in today's music scene - a scene that (although I love) is often inundated with songs about getting lit and having your heart broken - instead, Huia leans more towards a perfect little blend of taking care of your inner self and also of the natural world that we are surrounded by."
