Henika is an Auckland based singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer touring her latest album Strange Creatures made from native birdsong. The birds act as her band with Tui on beats, Kakapo on bass, Kokako on harmony and Korimako on melodic hooks. The genres span from altpop to jazz to hiphop, all tied together by birdsong and the message of conservation. Henika’s live show is quirky, fun and colourful. She accompanies the birds with live instruments such as the slide guitar, double bass and theremin. See unusual costumes with paper mache bird heads and hear stories about her encounters with the birds while recording on Tiritiri Matangi Island.
