AONUA is a musical collaboration from the South Pacific islands of New Zealand comprising Maori vocalist Taisha and composer / producer Malcolm Smith. The music is an original blend of Polynesian instruments, vocals and native wildlife, mixed with contemporary sounds with the purpose of taking the listener away to a beautiful South Pacific experience. Listening to this music has been described as spiritual and healing. The lyrics are written in the languages of Maori and English, so the listener can hear the beauty of the Maori language while still understanding the meaning of the songs.
