Approved: Chroma

Having released their debut album ‘Ask For Angela’ earlier this month, Welsh bilingual band Chroma have headed off to Aotearoa in New Zealand to take part in a project examining the connection between Mãori and Welsh language culture through live music.

For the initiative, the group have teamed up with Māori band Half/Time, who recently visited Wales to perform at FOCUS Wales, perform a number of other gigs around the country, and give a talk at Cardiff University.

“It’s an absolute honour to be invited to Aotearoa to play some shows with our new friends Half/Time”, says Chroma drummer Zac Mather. ”We played with them earlier this year when they visited the UK and can't wait for them to show us their favourite venues and places they like to hang out”.

Half/Time guitarist Wairehu Grant adds: “After the amazing time we had in Cymru earlier this year and the manaakitanga (hospitality) we were shown by both the Cardiff University team and the folks in Chroma, we’re super excited to welcome them all to Aotearoa. Really looking forward to playing more shows with Chroma and collaborating with the Cardiff team further”.

Back in the UK, Chroma are also looking forward to supporting Foo Fighters at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground next June. Right now, watch the video for recent single ‘Don’t Wanna Go Out’ here:
