Aro are a blend of stories in song expressing the people, the culture and the land of Aotearoa.
Following on from their first nationwide tour in 2018, the duo released their debut bilingual album ‘Manu’ on Waitangi Day this year. The 10 track album was transcribed from the melodies and rhythms of New Zealand's native birds and plays on their characteristics and significance for Māori. 'Manu' and its kaupapa to convey messages about identity are being shared around the country on Aro’s second nationwide tour in March to May 2019.
Love defines this jazz-pop-RnB, husband and wife duo, and harmony is their signature. Aro are a kiwi, van-dwelling pair made up of Charles (Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Waikato, Te ati awa) and Emily Looker (nee Rice).
