TE VAKA [The Canoe] is a dynamite Polynesian-rock fusion band that has been called “the finest South Pacific roots band” and “the heart and soul of the Pacific.” Pacific Islander musicians and dancers from Samoa, Tokelau, the Cook Islands and New Zealand Maori, under the inspiring leadership of Opetaia Foa’i, create a unique mix that combines log drums with electric guitar, Polynesian dance with drum kit and bass, for a contemporary sound infused with the ancient rhythms of the Pacific.
