ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On the 31st of August 2002, over 20,000 people gathered in Apia Park, for the biggest live concert ever to be held in Samoa. After 5 years of international touring and performing in over 30 countries, the band had come full circle and for many members of the group this event was a home coming. The atmosphere on the night was electric. The audience witnessed something very special as Apia Park reverberated to the the powerful, tribal and unique sound that can only be Te Vaka.

Songlines UK review by Nigel Williamson
An Emotional homecoming gig from a group well-suited to DVD
Te Vaka (it means ‘the canoe’) are by far the best of modern Polynesian bands, as anyone who has caught them live at WOMAD or elsewhere will testify. Blending musical styles from across the Pacific region with Western rock influences and using traditional slit-log and skin drums alongside kit-drums, bass and guitars, they’re impressive enough on CD. But if ever the DVD format was tailormade to showcase a band’s skills, it has to be Te Vaka, for their dancing and on-stage exuberance are integral and dramatic elements of what they do.

In August last year, the band travelled from New Zealand, where they are now based, to the island of Samoa for what was, in effect, a triumphant homecoming after five years of international touring. There they played in Apia Park, where more than 20,000 turned out to greet them. It was an emotionally charged occasion and the cameras were there to capture the electricity in the night air as the group performed 20 numbers in what was a joyous celebration rather than just a concert. They deliver more than an hour and a half’s worth of powerful music. But just as fascinating is another hour of travelogue-style material, following the band around Samoa, where they visit local villages and schools.
