Riqi Harawira

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Riqi Harawira’s music is Māori fusion ‒ te reo, English reggae and high-energy rock music.

A survivor of state care, music is Riqi’s rongoa / medicine, his way of healing and giving back.

Riqi is an advocate for mental health having battled with depression and beaten addiction himself.

His kaupapa / purpose through music and the campaigns he supports are about breaking the chains, rewriting the narrative, continually finding the tools to stay healthy and rising up through the guidelines of his Māoritanga / culture.

Using the high energy of his Māori fusion music as a vehicle, he plays inspiring gigs all over the world, spreading messages of recovery, hope and self-determination.

Riqi’s new album Mauri is out January 2019 and available on Google play, iTunes and Spotify.
