Ururangi: Celebration of the Pacific at Union Chapel on Sunday 20 June 2010

We're pleased to help promote the following event:

Ururangi: Celebration of the Pacific
Union Chapel, London on Sunday 20 June 2010

Ngāti Rānana, the London Māori cultural group, in association with Spacific, is proud to present a one-off concert, at the Union Chapel on Sunday 20 June.

The line-up for the event is something very rarely available to a larger audience in London, as it shows, maybe for the first time, how vibrant and active traditional and contemporary Polynesian culture is in the city.

The event feature talents drawn from across the South Pacific region: log drums and dancing by Beats of Polynesia; the soulful sounds of LA Mitchell; spoken word from Sistar Spacific; art by George Nuku; a dance performance by Ana Lavekau and the grand finale by Ngāti Rānana themselves.

Ngāti Rānana has been invited to compete in an International Māori Song and Dance Competition, Te Manahua, where they will be performing against other groups from Hawai'i, Sydney and the Pacific Islands. The concert at Union Chapel is one of many events the Club are holding to raise funds to help pay for the travel to Hawai'i.

Tickets are on sale now for £12.50 +b/f from TicketWeb –

Door sales will be available for £20 on the day.

Location: Union Chapel, Compton Avenue, London, N1 2XD
Date: Sunday 20 June, Doors open at 16:00pm to begin 16:30pm
