Hikoikoi announce debut album release & June tour

Petone-based reggae-soul-roots band Hikoikoi are proud to announce the release of their self-titled debut album on 29 May and a nationwide tour throughout June to promote the release.

Hikoikoi's unique blend of roots-fuelled reggae with a hint of jazz and soul-flavoured vocals delivered with a powerful conscious message make for inspiring studio tracks and live performances.

The bands long-awaited debut album features Hikoikoi's unique vocal style and signature keyboard sound, which have seen them become favourites at music festivals over the past 3 years.

The release of 'Hikoikoi' comes on the back of their well-received 2008 EP release of 'Vibraphone', 'Jah Armour' and 'Too Hot To Work', which were picked up for airplay by various radio throughout New Zealand.

The band's latest radio single 'Blood in the Sand' and supporting video endorses their commitment to sharing messages of peace, unity and solidarity as the lyrics in 'Jah Armour' attest: Maybe your rhythm be black, maybe your rhythm, be white, but in the end I know we will unite. Paul Wickham, lead singer of Hikoikoi comments: "Our music speaks of respect for each other and the world we share. Its music for your heart as well as your head".

After a hugely successful summer of festivals, including Taranaki's Parihaka Peace Festival, Rotorua's Mardi Gras, Palmerston North's The Festival Of Cultures and Auckland City's Music In Parks, Hikoikoi are ready to take their sound on the road to all of Aotearoa on an extensive nationwide tour.
