Our Story

Soul Paua are a critically acclaimed group that produce original acoustic soul / folk influenced by Maori and Pacific culture. We have been playing and recording since 2002.   

All songs are composed by brothers Jerry and Maurice Banse.  Soul Paua’s first album 'Pohewa' (‘The Dreamer') was nominated for a NZ Music Award and we have performed regularly domestically and internationally since then. We have written music for stage, TV and radio, and members have supported well known international touring artists such as George Benson.

Soul Paua had a break in 2011 but from 2017 we have been playing live and working on the new original album 'World of Mountains and Spirits' due for release in March 2021.
