Mika is marking the 20th anniversary of his first te reo Māori album Mika Haka by rereleasing it on all major streaming services.

The album was a collaboration with now-acclaimed acclaimed classical composer Gareth Farr and producer Joel Haines.

Mika describes what was his second album as a te reo Māori dance album born in the Polynesian capital of Auckland at the turn of the millennium, where tribal rhythms meet pumping nightclubs, where identities are fluid and a world of difference seems possible.

The success of the album led to major performances including two seasons at the Edinburgh Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Japan and in New Zealand with his dance crew ”Torotoro”.

Mika Haka will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube Music and more from July 13.
