Hailing from West End, Brisbane, Chocolate Strings launch their much anticipated second album onto the dance floor of the YOT Club in Raglan. With them they bring the hi-octane mix of funk, dub ska that is Yebiisu!!

8 piece Brisbane Polynesian ‘soul, reggae, dub’ band Chocolate Strings are heading over the ditch and back to New Zealand, this time they bring their much anticipated follow-up album with a bunch of launches strung around the North Island.

Heading up their powerful vocal harmonies are three South Pacific Islander singers: Ofa Fanaika, Nia Falekakala and Nicole Loa McWalters from Tonga and Papua New Guinea respectively.

Their latest album represents exactly why Chocolate Strings have become the go-to party starters and festival favourites – pulsing reggae grooves tapped with dreamy neo-soul arrangements all while strongly focused on melodic harmonies. This is the record those who have witnessed a Strings show have been itching for.

From the depths of the Waitakere Ranges comes Yebiisu... a soulful and politically-conscious mix of funk, dub, and ska, powered by tribal percussion, bass-heavy grooves, harmonic horns, and mezmerising vocals.

Music starts 8pm
Doors $10
