Raiza Biza - with guests Ruse and The Settlers
This September, Heads Together brings RAIZA BIZA and his fresh take on hip hop down to the Garden City.
His live performance has seen him playing shows all over the world, completing a 6 date tour across Europe just last year. His recent work with Ill Baz & Melodownz, "High Beams", has been a huge success, and his list of recent collaborators range all the way from David Dallas to Jon Toogood (Shihad and the Adults).
To aide him in the delivery of his performance, we have previous DMC and Red Bull Three Style NZ Champ RUSE on the decks, plus a performance from local Hip Hop legends, The Settlers.
Tickets on sale from Friday the 17th of August.
RAIZA BIZA BIO
When Hamilton based Rwandan rapper Raiza Biza’s smooth baritone and contemplative storytelling blurs into the jazz/soul tinged beats he favours, it’s hard to not be swept away. Quickly, you're drawn into the story of a young Tupac, Mos Def and Talib Kweli loving immigrant who made New Zealand his home, while simultaneously reaching out to a global audience, and all through music.
Over four street albums and a relentless touring schedule, Raiza and his AmmoNation collective have entertained audiences nationwide, through to Europe and Australia, while reaching out to listeners overseas online. Fresh off the release of his collaborative EP with producer IllBaz, and rapper MELODOWNZ, which received critical acclaim across the NZ media. For this young talent, taking things to the next level feels inevitable.
