Casual Healing

Dates: Sunday, 23 June

One good thing about healing, when it hits - you feel no pain.

Casual Healing will make his third stop of the Te Ika-a-Māui tour in Tairāwhiti at The Dome Cinema on Sunday 23rd June.


Nikau Te Huki is a unique composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Pōneke, Aotearoa - and his soulful solo project goes by the name of Casual Healing. For over six years, Nikau has significantly influenced the music scene in Wellington. Establishing a vibrant hub for indigenous Roots, Rock, and Reggae through his band H4LF CĀST. Notable performances have taken place at Gardens Magic, Tora Bombora, Nest Fest, and Twisted Frequency.

There’s something curious about this young Maori-Italian maestro. He holds a charming crooked smile and often appears in elaborate wardrobe, with an old nylon guitar over his shoulder looking like Elvis Marley, weaving a symphony of Roots, RnB, Reggae, Neo-soul, Indie, folklore and Rock. The entire Casual Healing discography has been produced by Nikau in his home studio, Te Whare CHuR. Thus we begin to explore the many talents of this man.

Casual Healing understands the power of music. As a true sonic missionary, Nikau is creating a soothing “golden-era sound” as part of his mission to heal with his music. Te Huki is a natural storyteller who inspires the listener by sharing his perspective of life through an authentic and relatable lens, drawing from a palette of raw emotions and painting a canvas woven from the tapestry of his unique life.

The songs of Casual Healing emphasise life lessons of aroha, peace and unity through powerful lyrical scribe woven into smooth reggae, soul rhythm. This infusion creates a unique nostalgic vibe, creating a captivating and comforting essence that evokes
recollections of moments shared with friends and whānau. Casual Healing's goal is to create songs that “make people feel like they want to be better people”, drawing inspiration from Bob Marley, who showed us the power of compassion and simplicity.

"In Te Huki’s own words, he's 'on the precipice of something massive,' and definitely is an artist you should be keeping your eye on."
- Salient Magazine

"Soulful and introspective"
- Sniffers

"A certified Kiwi-classic-to-be."

Daniel Champagne

Dates: Saturday, 13 July

The young virtuoso recently described as “the finest guitar player of this generation” has fallen in love with New Zealand and after sellout tours through North America and Europe he will be back for an extensive national run of 35 shows!

Growing up in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia the story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following 15 years have seen him independently release 7 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

He has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed” and from March to June 2024 he will be touring Canada, from Vancouver Island in the West out to Newfoundland in the east and 56 towns in between!
