  • New Zealand hip hop

    Fijimahn by Fijimahn
    Hip hop is originally an African American cultural movement, composed of four parts: rapping, DJing, graffiti art and breakdancing. The first element of hip hop to reach New Zealand was breakdancing, which gained notoriety after the release of the 1979 gangster movie The Warriors. The first hip hop hit single, "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang became a hit in New Zealand when it was released there, in 1980, a year after it was released in the United States. By the middle of the 1980s, breakdancing and graffiti art were established in urban areas like Wellington and Christchurch. By the Early 1990s Hip Hop became apart of mainstream New Zealand culture.

    Many of New Zealand's biggest hip hop stars are Māori or Pacific Islander. These include Dalvanius Prime, whose "Poi E" was the first New Zealand hip hop hit, Dean Hapeta, and Upper Hutt Posse, whose 1988 E Tu was the first album of pure hip hop. Primative Morbid a more underground yet powerful group with many hits . Some rappers, such as the members of Upper Hutt Posse, became known for politicized lyrics in support of tino rangatiratanga (Maori sovereignty). Despite the style's burgeoning popularity, many New Zealanders hated hip hop, and some radio stations implemented a so-called "no rap, no crap" policy. It was Upper Hutt Posse's DJ, DLT, that helped lay the groundwork for a local scene in Auckland, from which arose Joint Force, Che Fu and Dam Native. DLT also began the influential radio show True Skool Hip Hop Show, which joined Wellington's Wednesday Night Jam in promoting hip hop. Wellington's underground scene was vibrant in the late '80s, from whence arose the local supergroup Rough Opinion and a wave of performers like The Wanderers, Temple Jones and Hamofide. In the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, Maori and Polynesian hip hop musicians grew steadily more popular, resulting in a style called Urban Pasifika. Artists from this period included Savage, Korza, Che Fu, Nesian Mystik and Scribe, who became the first to top both the single and album charts at the same time in 2004, and also the most famous acts associated with the biggest record producer in the field, P-Money.

  • Oceania & Music

    While the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean encompasses more than 25,000 islands (not to mention the island continent of Australia), the cultures and musics of the region are surprisingly coherent and maintain deep connections across vast distances.

    There are three main island groups in the Pacific: Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. Melanesia includes some of the Pacific's larger islands, including New Guinea, Fiji and Vanuatu. Micronesia contains some of the smallest islands: Wake Island, Palau, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, etc. While the Polynesian islands range from Hawaii in the North to New Zealand in the South, and Easter Island in the far East, off the Western coast of South America. These groupings are more cultural than geographic and correspond to the different waves of migration that first populated the region. Because of the cultural similarities of these far-flung groupings, the indigenous music of the Pacific can be divided into three categories as well.

    Polynesian music is the most well known by far. It includes everything from the Hawaiian hula and steel-guitar traditions to joyful, polyphonic choral music of Tahiti. Though traditional instruments such as slit-gongs and nose-flutes can be found throughout the region, the voice has long been the most important instrument among Polynesian peoples. Whether singing Christian hymns imported by missionaries or traditional songs such as the lakalaka of Tonga that date back generations, their choral music is unsurpassed. Also important in Polynesian musical culture is dance, both to accompany "action songs" such as the hula and the 'aparima of Tahiti, or in the signature seated-dance styles such as Western Samoa's ma'ulu'ulu. Polynesia also offers the unique music of New Zealand's Maori people, whose legendary hakka dance can still send shivers down an onlooker's spine.

    Melanesian music is less famous than Polynesian music but it's no less diverse. It includes the myriad of tribal styles found in New Guinea, the Polynesian-influenced music of Fiji, and even the unique music of the Australian aborigines, who are culturally related to the Melanesian peoples. The instrumentation varies from the Australian didgeridoo to the musical bows and bullroarers of New Guinea. But the common characteristics that bind these diverse traditions together are the reliance on ritual, dream states and even spirit possession. While sung polyphonies and group vocal music plays an important role in Micronesian music—especially the singsings of Papua New Guinea—it rarely achieves the same heights as Polynesian choral music.

    Micronesian music is even more dependent on vocals, with a much more limited range of instruments. One of the main forms of musical expression is the stick dance, which varies across islands but generally tells the stories of the peoples: genealogies, histories and migrations. Polyphonic singing is also prominent in Micronesia, as are speech-singing and Christian hymns.

    Europeans brought more than just Christian music, to the region, though. And the biggest impact were the many stringed instruments—from guitars to ukuleles—that Westerners left in their wake. Throughout the entire region "stringbands"—groups of guitar, ukulele or steel-guitar players—still remain intensely popular, especially in Hawaii and New Guinea. Of course, the biggest European impact on the Pacific took place in Australia and New Zealand, two former British colonies with well-developed Western pop, folk and even country styles all their own
