Tāmaki-based artist Makaurau and his seven-piece band hit the road this winter to serve up his soul funk grooves with a dose of magick.
Having carved out a niche for themselves within Auckland’s vibrant music community over the past 7 years. Lou’ana’s voice carries the stature of an old soul; a cosmic cocktail of sweetness and soul, with an added grainy blues edge that references the golden age of Etta James, the brutality of Stevie Nicks.
His heart and soul translate into sound, in that inexplicable alchemy that happens when music meets word.

Moonlight Madness, LOU’ANA’s recently released debut album, infuses their brand of funk, jazz and soul with a hint of their peaceful roots to create Mystic Soul Music. Three-time Pacific Music Awards finalist LOU’ANA’s eclectic, free-spirited sound is unmatched magic.
“Rarely, in New Zealand, has a singer whose voice is so big, so beautiful and so luminous that it contains worlds within worlds” Mike Alexander Music Net
LOU’ANA and her seven-piece band turned the album into an epic and high-energy live experience after a sold-out album launch at Auckland’s Q Theater in November. LOU’ANA had an exciting festival season in 2021 with sets at Nest Fest, Earth Beat, Mainstage SPLORE and NZ Spirit Festival.
After a sold-out New Zealand Music Month show “Live at The Museum”, featuring LOU’ANA, Reb Fountain and Georgia Lines, the Soulstress and her band are excited to take the show on the road for winter performance.
