Peren­ni­ally pop­u­lar per­form­ers play­ing

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

One of the most pop­u­lar groups in New Zealand will per­form in Toko­roa this month.

Ardi­jah will per­form at the Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club on Septem­ber 23.

The group, from Auck­land, formed in 1979 and spent the early part of the 1980s play­ing the Auck­land so­cial scene, hon­ing their skills as a cov­ers band.

They re­leased their first sin­gle in 1986, Give Me Your Num­ber which was fol­lowed in 1987 with Your Love Is Blind.

Ardi­jah call their unique style poly-fonk and refers to their blend­ing of Poly­ne­sian sounds such as Poly­ne­sian log drums and ukele­les with a rhythm and blues sound.

The South Waikato News has one dou­ble pass to give away. To go in the draw, tell us what year the group formed along with your name and con­tact de­tails.

Sub­mit your en­try on the back of an en­ve­lope or email swaikato.editor@wrcn.co.nz.

ON THEIR WAY: Betty-Ann Monga and Rico Tali of Ardi­jah per­form dur­ing the Te Ra o te Raukura fes­ti­val at Te Whiti Park.
