ABOUT
 

Marking 10 years since her first te reo Māori release, Huia has been writing her latest Ep Āio for the past year, balancing life as a ʻmamaʻ and ʻartistʻ. This EP reflects this journey, with waiata that also balance the 2 music worlds she lives in, that is, the space between the traditional Māori sound and the electronic vibes of the ever-evolving music consciousness of now.  

Āio hit #16 on NZ Hot Singles Charts in the first week and was the only Te Reo Māori single in the top 20. Āio EP has also been playlisted all round the world, from France, in the Highlands of Scotland, to Melbourne and closer to home on Waiheke Island.

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.” (Amanda Hailwood for Muzik.net.nz)

Āio is Huia’s 3rd solo release since her debut album Huia’s Waiata’, as well as the award winning ʻTātou Tātou Eʻ Collective releases (V1-V5) and ʻLullabies Of The Worldʻwhich hit #11 on the German charts. Huia was invited to perform the classic Aotearoa lullabye ʻHine E Hineʻ(over 40,000 streams) by the late and much missed artist producer Ramesh Weeratunga.

You may have heard Huia’s warm tones at: Lovelake festival,Splore (opening Karanga and performing), Coro Sonic Lab festival, The Rogue Stage, Waiheke Jazz festival, R’n’V, The Red Lounge Sessions and Auckland Museum. Huia was awarded for her work in the music industry by Auckland Arts Trust and was a recipient of the Arts Venture Programme Award.
