“Te Vaka will appeal to world music fanatics, new-agers, smooth-jazz listeners and anyone else that appreciates gorgeous harmonies, infectious log-drum rhythms and joyous percussion.” – LA Daily News

“A stereo-type smashing glimpse into the true soul of the South Seas.”
– Wired Magazine, USA

TE VAKA has been called “the heart and soul of the Pacific” and “the finest South Pacific roots band”. TE VAKA returns to Hawaii, bringing its high-energy, Polynesian-rock fusion rhythms to the Hawaii Theatre stage. Under the inspiring leadership of songwriter and lead vocalist Opetaia Foa‘i, this dynamic group of Pacific Islander musicians and dancers from Samoa, Tokelau, Cook Islands and New Zealand combines log drums with electric guitar, Polynesian dance with drum kit and bass, to create a unique, contemporary sound infused with powerful tribal rhythms from their traditional South Seas roots.

Sponsored by The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaiian Springs, and Honolulu Star-Advertiser

VIP Package: Includes VIP seating, parking, a drink, a CD and a post-show meet & greet / photo-op with the band. (VIP seating no longer available.)
