Pacific Curls

October 12, 2014 @ 8:00 PM

Transcending the seams of Maori, Pacific and Scottish culture, Pacific Curls make music that is enthralling. With a cornerstone of backbeat Pacific rhythms, vivacious Scottish fiddle playing and evocative Maori instrumentation and lyrics, Pacific Curls have pioneered a fusion sound blending their indigenous roots. Classifying their sound is a challenge. Their use of jazz cordial transitions, traditional Scottish fiddle tunes, expressive vocals, political and moving lyrics in Maori and English, their use of world instruments with Pacific style beats and moods, shakes and bakes it all into a contemporary intriguing edginess.

With appearances at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games celebrations, WOMAD NZ, and UK, Earth Station, City of London Festival, Borneo Rainforest World Music Festival, Vancouver Island Music Festival, Winnipeg Music Festival, Ulsan World Music Festival (South Korea) and extensive touring throughout Canada, Australia, South Korea, New Caledonia, Europe and Aotearoa (NZ) this band creates a window into the global sounds of the Pacific, Scotland and beyond.

“Pacific Curls – what can I say but WOW WOW WOW. Here are three incredibly gifted women who together create the most beautiful, sensitive, emotive, inspiring and unique music. Their blend of Scottish and Pacific influences make this group individual … Exotic rhythms, Celtic fiddle, Te Reo, brilliant compositions, fabulous vocals, exceptional musicianship and personality plus, make Pacific Curls world class – think I’ve run out of adjectives!” Mike Nettman, NZ.

Target audience: appeals to all ages.
