New Year = New Artist: Get to know your South Pacific Artists!

Talofa! (Hello in Samoan)

This is Melia from Mixed Plate the only program here in SO-IL that plays music from the South Pacific with a mix of world thrown in!

I walked my cold little butt to the station Tuesday morning and played some non-stop NESIAN MYSTIC. Totally awesome band that comes out of NZ (New Zealand). What’s super cool about this group is that they themselves are sort of a mixed plate.  Their members are from all over Pacifica. Naturally we all know, that the one from Samoa is the best (Just saying. Samoans are awesome. Never forget that! ) . Through the blends of their culture and their musical backgrounds they create Nesian Mystic.

Their song “Introduction”, (off of the album Polysaturated) makes me laugh every time I listen to it. It’s a humorist skit about how they were called together to lift up their people and to create a positive foundation for their nation. So buy the cd that way you can listen to it! It’s interesting how they flow together songs that are meant to make you wanna dance and the songs that make you want to make a change. Nesian Mystic’s style of music is a combination of R’n’B, Hip Hop, and Reggae. They currently have 4 Albums starting with Polysaturated, Freshman, Elevator Musiq, and finally their newest album 99ad. On Tuesday I mostly played from Polysturated, Elevator Musiq,  and Freshman. Check out their website for more info and also funny little mini interviews from each of the members. I love their accents!! ❤
