After the backyard blues and psychedelic sci-fi soul of his first two albums, Māori actor and musician Troy Kingi heads across the ditch with a swag of awards and a new record with a new sound.
His third instalment of the 10 / 10 / 10 Series (10 albums in 10 genres in 10 years), Holy Colony Burning Acres is a departure from his sophomore offering (Shake Your Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron) with a hard-hitting, electrifyingly ’70s-styled deep roots reggae sound reminiscent of such bands as The Abyssinians, The Upsetters and The Congos, with powerful lyrics that focus on issues affecting the world’s Indigenous peoples.
Kingi will be a recognisable face for those who saw The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but onstage in The Lighthouse with a guitar in his hand, he’s sure to cast a spell over music lovers.
