What a blast!  We had a great Kotahi in 2017 - we were impressed by those who braved the weather!  This year's programme featured   
Sorceress, sonic innovators Orchestra of Spheres and welcomed local
MC Flowz.  Flowz was joined by MC Pioneer, J10 & Trek One aka The Dream Team.  
This year all proceeds from gate koha and stall sales went towards the installation of the new Super Slide.  
See you at next year's concert - and fingers crossed for improved weather!!

And thank you to our wonderful volunteers and Caroline Aitkinson Photography for the fantastic images.


Despite the blustery weather the crowds still came out in force to enjoy some great live entertainment from A Girl named Mo, Disasteradio and Lord Echo.  Not to mention Break Out Dance Crew and the Kahurangi School kapa haka roopu.
​We loved seeing kids arrive with cardboard boxes ready for the "traditional" cardboard hill slide and the smiles on everyone's faces.  See you next Waitangi Day!!


6 FEBUARY 2016
4 - 7PM

Kotahi is an all ages concert featuring some of Wellington’s finest electronica musicians.
Set in the natural amphitheater located at Kahurangi School, it is the perfect venue to sit back and enjoy the show. Bring the kids or friends, a blanket and a picnic, and grab a treat from one of the food or craft stalls.
Gates open at 3.30pm, free entry but donations gratefully received.
Lord Echo
New Zealand producer and multi instrumentalist Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabulous) has been flexing his dual-mastery of 60's production techniques and modern dance floor aesthetics for over a decade now, through a flowing blend of boogie-laced Funk, disco-primed Reggae, futuristic Soul, and timeless African rhythms.
Back by popular demand, Kohtahi 2016 will feature the one and only Disasteradio. Disasteradio is the pseudonym of Luke Rowell, a computer musician from Lower Hutt, New Zealand. He began writing a mixture of Chiptune and synthpop in 1999 and has released eight albums, toured New Zealand over ten times and completed several tours of Europe, and one of the US. In 2012, Luke created a pseudonym Eyeliner for electronic adult contemporary/new-age music.
Fresh Wellington Music
The musical direction of Kotahi is inspired by Kahurangi School’s MPC project which invites local musicians to teach students how to create music using i-pads. Musicians who play at Kotahi have an electronica component to their music with the aim of continuing and inspiring the students’ learning and creativity.  
A Girl Named Mo
'A Girl Named Mo’ are an indie R&B band from Wellington. Electronica elements combined with a distinct R&B grind, AGNM are coming at neo-soul from another on-edge perspective.
