Scribe, Pasifika festival, 2004

Hip-hop music is an American genre which reached New Zealand cities in the mid-1980s. South Auckland is New Zealand’s centre of hip hop but it is also strong in Wellington and Christchurch. It has predominantly been taken up by Māori and Pacific people, though there are some Pākehā performers too. Here, Christchurch-born artist Scribe (of Samoan descent) performs before a large crowd at the Pasifika festival in Auckland.
