Moving Production presents:
Unity Pacific celebrates the cultural heritage of all its members; Niuean, Cook Islands, European, Maori and Samoan. The crew combine "stripped back dread roots with wonderful improvisation" and have released two critically acclaimed albums - "From Street To Sky" (2003) is a potent political retrospective through which Tigi tells his story as a first generation Niuean New Zealander who fought successfully with many others to bring about a paradigm shift in race relations in 1970s and 1980s New Zealand - and "Into The Dread" (2007) which celebrates the faith and unity of the band.
Alongside Three Houses Down - a group built on a strong choral tradition who are also finalists for best debut album and best group in the Pacific Music awards.
With support from The Mighty Asterix & Art Official.
