Music Performance

Join Tāmaki-based performer Samara Alofa for a special evening of music, featuring their latest tracks from Earth Punk!, other soundscape projects, alongside an opening poetry reading by a special guest.

This event is free to attend as part of Enjoy's public programme for the show He waiata aroha, closing 22nd May. He waiata aroha is a new moving-image installation by Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist James Tapsell-Kururangi. Moving closer towards his whānau oral histories, the film meditates on aroha, living and Māori conceptions of time and history.


Samara Alofa (Ngāti Awa, Samoa, Tonga, German/Pākēha) is a child of Te moana nui a Kiwa, and a multidisciplinary performance and sound-based artist. Their independently-produced debut album Earth Punk was released under Kuini Qontrol in late 2020 as an evocation of water, and an ancestral chanting for sovereignty through the decolonisation of body, spirit, gender, land and self.
