I can bring a joyfilled, playful and positive atmosphere to markets, street parties and community events.
On the mandolin I play a mixture of folk music melodies and also sing some songs from around the world.
Here is a video filmed July 2017 at Matakana market – look at all the little children dancing ! 🙂
I have performed street music in different forms in New Zealand, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, France, England and Germany.
I perform this music mostly with mandolin and looper.
This work is offered as a gift of joy and healing. I call this character ‘Karena Koa’ (Koa is the Maori word for joy).
I have a blog about this project here
