Reggae powerhouse ‘PAUA’ to play Sunshine Coast - playing Solbar June 15
Internationally renowned reggae band PAUA (Maori word pronounced Pah-wah) will perform at the Sunshine Coast’s Solbar on Saturday 15th June alongside locals Mantis Empire and Byron Bay favorites Hayley Grace & The Bay Collective.
Earlier this year Paua played the biggest reggae festival in the Southern Hemisphere ‘One Love Festival’ in New Zealand to a 20,000-strong audience. Now with new music and their always polished, varied and high energy live show, Paua return to Australian shores for a string of shows.
Paua’s unique signature elements cater for the mind, body, heart & soul, something for everyone.
Residing in Brisbane, Australia, Paua includes Maori heritage hailing from Aotearoa combined with a multicultural collective from Australia and Philippines. Although band members grew up in varying musical backgrounds, they connected through their mutual love of reggae music.
Many Paua releases have hit #1 on the New Zealand and Australian iTunes reggae charts and have become household favorites that audiences recite word-for-word. Having shared the stage on proclaimed festivals alongside reggae giants such as ‘Steel Pulse’, ‘Black Slate’, ‘Big Mountain’, ‘Julian Marley’, ‘The Green’, ‘Katchafire’, ‘Third World’, ‘Kolohe Kai’ & ‘Tarrus Riley’, Paua are forever enlightening the masses.
