Taonga Pūoro Meets HipHop / IA's Latest

May 19th 2022
IA joins creative forces with National Poetry Slam winner Te Kahu Rolleston in this unique and indigenous approach to Chill-hop.
Rhythmic enough to get you moving, yet mellow at its core, ‘Ngā Reo' shines a spotlight on
traditional Māori instruments (taonga pūoro) and Te Reo Māori, both lyrically and musically.
The track weaves taonga pūoro and Te Reo Māori into a contemporary hiphop sound, with steady
grooves, brightbeats, soulful vocals and poetic lyricism.

IA - Ngā Reo - Released 19 May 2022

Available now on all major music outlets including Spotify, Itunes, Google Play and Bandcamp.
