Pasifika Beatz

A collaboration with Whānau Āwhina Plunket

We had the pleasure of creating 100 songs in collaboration with Whānau Āwhina Plunket, gratefully funded by the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, as part of the ‘Pasifika Beatz’ resource toolkit.

10 albums in 10 different Pacific Island languages, with 10 songs per album!

A cultural music resource, for all!
