House of Shem (NZ)
The House of Shem's tight rhythm section, uplifting harmonies, conscious lyrics and blend of traditional and contemporary reggae styles make for an unforgettable live experience. Hailing from Aotearoa, New Zealand, the band is built around the classic harmony trio format. House of Shem boasts a wealth of experience, talent and a natural synergy that has cemented their place as one of New Zealand's most exciting live acts.
A saltry voice with razor sharp wit and a stage show to match, Ladi 6 is New Zealand's leading hip-hop soul artist who is fast emerging as an international star after live shows for Gil Scott-Heron, Mayer Hawthorne, Mos Def and Erykah Badu. Ladi 6 has traveled the world and forged a career highly decorated both at home and abroad - winning 'Best International Song' at the US's ISC Song Awards, as voted by a panel which included Tom Waits, Jeff Beck and Kings of Leon.
Iva Lamkum (NZ)
Working off a funk-soul blueprint, Iva Lamkum throws her own jazz twist and rich inimitable voice into the mix - treating audiences to a sophisticated, intelligent and unique soul-jazz sound.
