How Matala opened our eyes

Five days on, we are still reminiscing about the amazing performers and artists whose work we experienced in the performative gems of Sei o’ Fafine, Fanau Tangaata and A Heart´s Path, as part of Matala at Mangere Arts Centre.

Being in the audience of two sold-out performances, heavily subscribed to and supported by aiga and friends is an awesome way to spend our Friday night.

Fakafetai to the performers especially standouts of Litea Aholelei, Aisea Latu, Riki Nofo`akifolau, Ana Puliuvea, Vika Puliuvea, Aspasia Tatuila, Katerina Fatupaito, Lavinia ‘Uhila, Onetoto Ikavuka, Rosalind Tui, Albert Mateni, Paulo Mohenoa, Jessica Sanderson and the grand-daddy of them all, Michael Koloi.

Thank you to the artists Sesilia Pusiaki, Amanaki Prescott and Suli Moa. Big ups too to everyone who supported them. We can´t thank your collective villages enough.

Malo ‘aupito to you all.
