Supporting for the night is "Silva & The Battlesound"
Silva (a.k.a Tanya Dyer) hails from central Auckland where she grew up on the streets of Mt Roskill and Grey Lynn. Her talented and unique style is inspired by her father’s Jamaican roots and her love for hip hop beats and soul sounding grooves.
This “up n coming” artist is all about conscious music (music with a positive message). With much of her childhood years being spent with the Twelve Tribes of Israel New Zealand, her conscious lyrics and positive demeanour are definitely something to be watching out for.
