Charles and Emily met whilst studying music, three years later they married and Aro began!

Aro perform a fusion of reggae, blues, jazz and pop. They are a fun duo expressing their hearts for the people, the culture and the land of Aotearoa through rhythm, harmony and thought-provoking lyrics.

Emily has released solo music as Emily Rice, with We Stole the Sun, and has collaborated with Kiwi artists Noah Slee, Andy Lovegrove and Ed Waaka. Charles and Emily are both part of the Auckland-based band New Jungle Order.

Emily won funding from New Zealand on Air for her single 'Moab' (2015).

They take their inspiration from people, creation, Aotearoa and faith. They have just released their debut EP and are working on their album Manu.
