Welcome

Kia ora, talofa, welcome!

Soul Paua is a New Zealand based band playing critically acclaimed original songs influenced by Maori and Polynesian language and culture.  The group can perform from an acoustic three piece to a full 6 piece (electric) band.  All songs and music are composed by brothers Jerry and Maurice Banse. 

Soul Paua has a strong singer-songwriter foundation and performs live but has written music for theatre and radio, toured domestically and internationally, and its members have supported some iconic performers such as George Benson. 

Our first album 'Pohewa' featured a full band and was nominated for a New Zealand Music Award.  Soul Paua aims has recorded its second album and aims to release it in late 2017.
