Original Contemporary Pacific Music - South Pacific Fusion
Introduction
Te Vaka is a group of musicians and dancers from Tokelau, Tuvalu, Samoa, Cook Islands, and New Zealand brought together under the inspired leadership of Opetaia Foa'i. Te Vaka have been wowing audiences around the world since 1997 and have released seven internationally acclaimed CDs and two DVDs to date. Opetaia Foa’i is the songwriter and lead vocalist for the group, his inspiration comes from his multi-cultural upbringing - half Tokelauan, half Tuvaluan, born in Samoa and bought up in New Zealand. Opetaia’s musical background spans both the traditional and the diverse influences of contemporary metropolitan culture. He has been described as “one of New Zealand’s finest songwriters” and a true “son of the Pacific”.
