Latinaotearoa comes from the concept of blending local flavours with the colourful cultures of South America.

Brazilian-born Auckland DJ Bobby Brazuka and Venezuelan singer Jennifer Zea created a unique live performance with Bobby's Latin influenced soul-funk and hip hop selections layered with Jennifer's ravishing vocals. Later they welcomed talented musician and producer Isaac Aesili to the mix, creating the original Latinaotearoa line up.

The local response was so positive that the band decided to test international waters by taking their sound to Australia and Europe back in 2012.

It was soon apparent that this was not just a recipe for Kiwi appetites – bustling crowds meant promoters were quick to discuss future tours. This natural progression, and a desire to develop musically, led to plenty of new and original productions to season an already flavoursome set.
