Urban Legends

Urbanesia 2016 is a festival celebrating and showcasing the creative talents of Polynesian artists across nine locations in Auckland. Whau the People worked with a group of West Auckland artists to create a series of events, Urban Legends that celebrated the opening of this Auckland wide festival.


On Friday night for the launch, we jumped on the train from Henderson to Avondale together and encountered the sweet vocals of Tommy Nee and Sherydon Ngaropo. Arriving in Avondale to a performance by Siliga and back at All Goods for a Sausage Sizzle and music and a dance with Lanzwel to carry us into the evening.
