Two storming gigs from Polynesian collective. The world's most successful band to play original contemporary Pacific music, Te Vaka, are based in Auckland.
Founded in 1995 by the Western Samoan singer-guitarist Opetaia Foaí (whose Tokelauan language is a legacy of his Tokelau Island heritage), Te Vaka is a 13-strong collective of musicians and dancers from Tokelau, Tuvalu, Samoa, Cook Islands and New Zealand (seven of them from the extended Foaí family). Their compelling, upbeat brand of fusion has its roots in the chants, harmonies and log-drums of the Pacific Islands: their lyrics encourage awareness of the environment, stress the importance of community, and take politicians to task.
As great as they are on record (and they are), live they are something else. This DVD shows the band in two separate concerts; at Toata Stadium in Tahiti and Apia Park in Samoa. A traditionally dressed line-up of impossibly beautiful men and women playing everything from electric guitars and kit drums to pate (single and double log drums) and pa'u (indigenous goat-skin conga and bass drums), Te Vaka evoke the spirit of the islands through music and just as importantly through dance. There are music videos of the hits
Tamahana' andLakilua', as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the Tahitian tour- and of the bands arrival in Samoa. They are greeted with songs, dance, garlands and pride, revered as envoys of a beautiful, fragile part of the world.
