La Coco

Samoan-Māori artist from Māngere, La Coco began singing at an early age in church, later performing as a live backing vocalist and studio recording session singer, developing her renowned thick-soul sounding vocals.

LaCoco has released two 5-track EPs to date, 'Love and Other Things' and 'Love and Other Things part 2', which confirmed her as a finalist at the 2017 and 2018 Vodafone Pacific Music Awards, and also the 2018 Waiata Māori Music Awards.

'Waiting' is the first single from her upcoming EP, 'Out Of Time'. The EP has an electronica/soul/RnB vibe, with the music produced by La Coco's talented cousin Malachi Samuelu. She says she is proud to have kept the project family-orientated.

La Coco is in the final year of her Masters studies with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and works multiple jobs that connect her closely to the youth of her South Auckland community.
