Wednesday 27th April - Anika Moa, Songs of Bubbas 2 Tour - Tauranga Art Gallery 

3:30pm. Anika says: "Songs for Bubbas was born out of boredom, frustration and my silliness. Over the space of a year and a half I started to write the album in-between bot bots, tantrums, kai time and poo poo nappies, oh, along with my actual career which involves a lot of travel, strumming and singing. 

Songs For Bubba’s will capture the hearts and imagination of every child in Aotearoa.

The album is half Maori, half English being both educational whilst engaging Moa to continue her Maori language through song.

Gold coin donation per person.
