Very sorry to be unable to bring our music to WOMAD NZ 2022… Acapollinations & TUi MAMAKi will endeavour to keep the home fires burning / stay warm to share live music soon. Meanwhile, go to our bandcamp & support the Artists to stay afloat!
Haunting, spirited vocals over hypnotic odd-meter grooves. A meeting of delicacy and power. Original compositions inspired by TUi MAMAKi’s love affair with Bulgaria, spliced with traditional song, these are stories of love, harvest, death & transcendence.
TUi MAMAKi is a vocal explorer, performer, composer/arranger, born in France, raised in Aotearoa/NZ and often found in Bulgaria. She can thank her musically adventurous troubadour family for giving her a taste for sounds from far-away places. In following her voice, she has traveled to Pay Basque, India and the Balkans to study traditional vocal techniques and repertoire.
