Sonic Delusion, the New Zealand-based Swiss-Kiwi is one of the original one man banders, having been looping for over ten years and still digging the challenge of building up a song in front of a live audience with his latin-infused, pop-laced, funky, electroacoustic folk. A vibrant, high-energy performer, Sonic Delusion (Andre Manella) blends dynamic layers of rhythm, tones, bass lines and vocals, carving out his unapologetically ambitious and intriguingly experimental sound. He loves to exploit his too funky for folk and too folky for funk signature style, well known to bring a live crowd to rapturous atmospheric joy. Stoking the groove with funky bass or beats that really get the audience going, Sonic Delusion’s uniquely upbeat, a bit tongue-in-cheek, and bursting with more funk than folk can handle, is irresistible. Anything Goes (2019) is the newest album (to be released in May), and in keeping with Sonic Delusions’ style, Manella crafts his melody around lyrics that create a clever backdrop of very memorable songs. Fans following Sonic Delusion are in for a sweet ride on the new album, watch each single gathering momentum with their unapologetically funky, electroacoustic folk experimental sound.

In the heart of Oakura, just a skip and a hop from the black sanded Taranaki coast line, a different hop is delighting locals and craft beer enthusiasts (equally as much as the sea and surf of this popular township…) Three Sisters Brewery, established by husband-and-wife team Joe and Sarah, are part of the boutique brewery boom lubricating the country, and challenging traditional beer drinkers to experiment with distinctive, fresh and remarkable flavours that New Zealand craft beer brewers are becoming renown for. After winning the first Taranaki SOBA Homebrew Competition in 2015, followed by a silver medal at the Brewers Guild Awards in 2017, Three Sisters commenced commercially brewing in April 2017. Small batch production means the beer is always fresh, with the flavour profile the sharpest freshly brewed. Sourcing quality ingredients and using Oakura’s uniquely profiled water supply ensure an exciting range of craft beers are produced with each brewing session. Three Sisters Brewery staple offerings Oakura Blonde, Taranaki Gold, Medusa APA and award winning Rain in the Face APA are positioning Taranaki on the national craft beer brewing map.
