KAUMAAKONGA

Solomon Islands

Kaumaakonga (KMK) breathe new life into their Traditional Avaiki chants while combining traditional rhythms and percussion with panpipes, guitar and unique vocal harmonies. They rework and perform the chants and stories of their Polynesian forefathers, many which were previously forbidden and at risk of disappearing completely due to the effects of colonisation and religion reaching the shores of these small islands.KMK is the result of individual members efforts to take the listener on a sonic journey from the past and slingshot them to the future of modern/ traditional Polynesian Melanesian musical fusions.
