Be a part of Sola Rosa's live beat-driven trademark soul and funk and Tahuna Breaks as we welcome them to Henderson Park as part of Auckland Council’s Music in Parks series!
Andrew Spraggon’s work as Sola Rosa has cemented him as one of the world’s most exciting and versatile producers. From a humble, self-released one man project, Sola Rosa has grown to a live collective of international repute. Successfully melding hip hop, reggae, jazz, Latin, soul and funk, the group have never sat comfortably in one box, but with Spraggon’s guidance, that restlessness has been channelled into six succinct albums’ Their latest, Low and Behold, High and Beyond, draws together a host of familiar names and new faces.
Tahuna Breaks have always encompassed a rich diversity of musical genres and styles. With seven members, the group’s live act is energetic, raw and large. It combines aspects of the '60s, '70s and '80s and is influenced by artists as varied as James Brown to Daft Punk. The band are well known for being unafraid to mix genres and have honed their sound on the live stage that encompasses funk, disco, soul, live electronics and roots.
