  1. Maisey Rika


This soulful invocation, sung in te reo, to Tangaroa — Māori god of the sea — comes from singer-songwriter Maisey Rika's third album. The instrumentation includes a string quartet and traditional taonga pūoro instruments played by Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper. Director Shae Stirling’s music video has a vibrant clarity. It places Rika in the bush and the forest, in the surf and on the smouldering, volcanic landscape of Whakaari/White Island as she hails Tangaroa as commander of the tides while dolphins and whales provide further evidence of his life force.

What a beautiful soulful moving song and video. Does anyone know who did the wardrobe for this video? What designer? I would love the blue dress she wears for my wedding dress :)



Amazing Voice, it's like listening to an angel. It's soulful and it touches my heart to know what you're doing for the earth and the ocean.
