DJ CHIKAA (Waiheke)

Indie Roots Brothers from Darwin Australia are visiting Waiheke Island again after their successful tour to NZ last year.  They’ve busked the streets, played Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival and Burning Man. 

VanderAa sound blends a mix of drum, djembe, beatboxing, yidaki (didgeridoo) with guitar and vocals. You can feel the life they breathe into their words, the energy they move through their instruments and the connection they make with their audience.

Joining Vanderaa is Jonny from Byron Bay with his solo project Dusty Boots, a show of Funky Roots & Folk music Inspired by nature, the ocean and Vanlife. Jonny plays sax for some of the best bands in Australia. 

The night will open with DJ CHIKAA (Licorica) followed by CHIKATANA with vocalist Katana and special guests on percussion. CHIKATANA played at AUM festival this year and received great reviews for their unique combination of theatrical presence, ceremony and dance.

This will be a very special experience, including visuals, performers and great roots and tribal music.  Enter your body, mind and soul, feel the rhythm lift you up. VanderAa begin with the music and end with the music, and in-between is a story they love to share. 
 This is a show not to be missed.

VanderAa are donating their recent release through Acts of Kindness, a way of trading good deads in return for their music. Find out more here –
