The Adults ‘Haja’ Tour
September 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm NZST$55
Blue Smoke open from: 7:00pm – Show time: 8:30pm
In the fizz of releasing their joyous sophomore album “HAJA” (out 20 July), Jon Toogood’s THE ADULTS now announce three live performances across Aotearoa in September.
With a fluid cast of collaborators helmed by Shihad frontman Toogood, this live incarnation of THE ADULTS includes electric-blue witch hop pioneer Estere (who features on the album’s first single, ‘Bloodlines’), hip hop artist / rapper Raiza Biza (who’s found on the second single ‘Boomtown’ & album cut ‘That Gold’), drummer Ben Would of Trinity Roots and jazzy guitarist / vocalist Emily C. Browning.
Writing “HAJA” Toogood was inspired by the Sudanese folk music Aghani-Al-Banat performed exclusively by women, which he first encountered at his wedding in Khartoum.
