A group of four maoris, two white maoris and a wannabe maori… samoan fella.
AKINGA is a 5 piece band originally from New Zealand. They appeal to almost any age group. The band is extremely talented and totally dedicated to their music. With ongoing constant rehearsals they have an extensive repertoire from the 60’s through to current music and like to keep abreast of good commercial music. Their high-energy stage performance shows that they are having a good time.
AKINGA brings to the stage freshness in performance as, not only do they immediately capture their audience from the very first song, but also they maintain audience interest throughout their entire performance. They won the 2000 ACE AWARDS for ‘The Best Danceband’ and the following year they won “Best Showband.
