With its World fusion sounds, precise arrangements and a catalogue of songs and instruments that link the Pacific’s primal myths to Scotland’s mysticism, Pacific Curls– a trio consisting of a Pacific Islander, a Maori and a Scot perform totally enthralling world music.
Over the years they’ve played together, the three members have accumulated an impressive instrumental collection featuring the ukulele, cajon, fiddle, traditional Maori instruments, and various percussive instruments. With a rapidly growing international audience, particularly after appearances at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, WOMAD New Zealand and extensive touring throughout Canada, South Korea, Australia, Europe, New Caledonia and New Zealand, Pacific Curls established a loyal and enthusiastic following for their unique original blend of Polynesian-Celtica sounds.
Pacific Curls never set out to be a trio. Four years ago when they found themselves in an Auckland studio, recording a Celtic/Māori/Pacific fusion album with two others, they had little idea that after two European tours, untold Australian, several New Zealand and a knock out Canadian Festival run, they would be the last three standing. “We had no idea the three of us would end up as a trio and yet under miraculous circumstances we just seem to click,” says Sarah Beattie, vocal and long time fiddle player.
So if you want to put your finger on the pulse of a global sound, check out the Pacific Curls at the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) which will take place on the 8 to 10 July 2011.
They and an impressive lineup from across the globe will be at this exciting festival. Whether you want to see them on stage or join them in one of their workshop sessions, get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Looking forward to perform at RWMF 2011, Pacific Curls promised to energize the festival with their energetic rhythms and mix of world roots melodies. Organised by STB Leisure & Property, a subsidiary of Sarawak Tourism Board, this year’s Rainforest World Music Festival hope to attract a crowd of at least 70% from outside Sarawak.
