Pacific Music Awards
Tuis to Scribe & Te Vaka
Pan-Pacific musicians Te Vaka and Samoan-kiwi rapper Scribe dominate Aotearoa’s 2008 Pacific Music Awards.
Scribe takes the Tui for Best Song and Best Male Artist with Say it Again from his new album Rhymebook.
11-piece Te Vaka won Best Group and Best Album for Olatia.
“Pacific music has been a trailblazer for race relations, social responsibility and expressing human joy in Aotearoa and the Pacific region,” says Pacific Music Awards Chair Rev. Mua Strickson-Pua.
Scribe: Say it Again
Scribe’s Say it Again music video showcases his cousin, R&B diva Tyra Hammond, in a retro tribute to kiwi 60s pop. The open features New Zealand TV icon Peter Sinclair from the classic music show C’mon.
Say it Again is produced by Auckland’s Zoomslide and directed by prolific kiwi music video maker Adam Jones.
