Art On the Move - Barefoot Divas
Struggle, power and sensational music come to Pataka Museum in Porirua, as five proud black women combine their talents in the spirited Walk a Mile in My Shoes.
Whirimako Black (Maori), Emma Donovan (Aboriginal Australian), Merenia (Maori Romany Gypsy), Ngaiire (Papua New Guinean) and Maisey Rika (Maori) are the Barefoot Divas – a group of funny, cheeky and uplifting women who take their commentary on fame, contemporary music and cultural struggle right to the edge.
Each a star in their own right, these women come together to form a potent vocal force that swings between reggae, roots, R&B and Latin-infused soul. But this is more than just music. Speaking openly about the vagaries, pitfalls, scams and scandals of life as contemporary musicians, this is a telling and intimate insight about life on the road and in the studio.
The commanding voices of the Divas are accompanied by a band of musicians originating from Chile, Peru, Greece and Australasia. Developed by writer Alana Valentine and producer/director Vicki Gordon Walk A Mile In My Shoes transcends borders and beliefs. This will be an entertaining evening of spoken word and song that is inspirational and a little bit outrageous.
