Fusing traditional, grunty Pacific infused afrobeats with raw vocals and poi rhythms Waipara creates his second album ‘Fill Up The Silence” which is uniquely his own and “Unashamedly rugged”. Due for release on September 6th 2013.
Recorded at Bunker Studio in Brooklyn New York, Tama was inspired to capture the sounds of his home – the beautiful, but also vast and rolling East Coast of New Zealand. His time away allowed him to reflect with newfound objectivity and gave the freedom to experiment musically.
To celebrate the album release Tama Waipara is touring four shows with a full band consisting of Dylan Elise, the album producer Aaron Nevezie and Fran Kora.
