Ariana Tikao and Jon Hooker, with special guests

Christchurch is in for a special treat this Spring with a one-off concert by Wellington-based Kai Tahu singer Ariana Tikao and Christchurch guitarist Jon Hooker, with special guests including percussionist Argene Flack.

They will be playing a mix of old and new songs from both their solo repertoires, as well as waiata from their folk-fusion band, Emeralds and Greenstone. They will also incorporate some new compositions and the occasional cover.

Jon’s fingerpicking style of guitar has been described as ‘subtle, sometimes delicious but never dominating’, which is well-suited to the emotive and unique style of Ariana’s singing which ranges from an ethereal whisper through to the raw power of rhythmic Maori chants.
