Pack your dancing jandals, rain won’t stop this show!
TriggerFish duo Kura Happ and Mo Newport are set to showcase their smooth grooves along with a great line up of special guests at Tarekareka 2015. Organisers say the possibility of wet weather will not deter them.

Pack your umbrellas and dancing jandals for the highly anticipated Tarekareka 2015 concert ‘Our People Our Music’ showcasing the islands musical talents.

Organisers at Motone Productions are keeping a keen eye on the weather as they get set to welcome the main acts of the New Year ’s Day concert tomorrow.

The Cook Islands’ very own legend Will Crummer and songstress daughter Annie Crummer touch down today and will join the star studded line up of home based talents for an afternoon of island rhythm to kick off the yearlong 50th anniversary of self-governance in style.

Gates to the Nukupure Park venue at the Ngatangiia field will open at 2pm with the official programme set to start at 3pm with an official opening pure.

Formalities will follow before the Takitumu drummers get the crowd in the mood for the exiting line up for the night to feature the soulful sounds of Kahiki, TriggerFish and special guests, Opera Arias to cap off the show – Annie Crummer, Will Crummer and the Royal Rarotongans.

There will also be a second concert on Aitutaki and pulling the two events together has been a labour of love for creative company Motone, which is committed to starting 2015 off with an event that draws young and old together to truly acknowledge the milestone year the way it should be.
