Maisey Rika’s 3rd studio album Whitiora is a full length Te reo (Maori) album with 11 tracks. Whitiora is to represent a positive, new light on life. Since Maisey’s first solo release in 2009, she has developed her craft further as an outstanding singer-songwriter with much success over the past 3 years.
Whitiora includes Tangaroa Whakamautai, the first single of the album, which takes you on a journey through the ocean and Maori legend. Other tracks include “Ruaimoko” ft Anika Moa, which is a haunting reference to the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, mixed delicately with a string quartet. Maisey worked with a wide range of Maori songwriters to collaborate and create some angelic, original pieces.
