It has been four years since Ariana Tikao’s last solo album, “Tuia” which received great praise at home and abroad.

Tikao’s highly anticipated release “From Dust To Light”, is primarily inspired by the devastating earthquake in her hometown of Christhurch. “Dust rose above the city that day from crumbling buildings. As you can imagine, it not only affected us physically, but emotionally and spiritually,” says Ariana. “From the wreckage though, people are picking themselves up, forging ahead into new growth and opportunities.”

“From Dust To Light” is more of a crossover album since “Tuia”, showcasing Tikao’s stylistic development and experimentation. This album presents crystalline vocals and spacious meditative song structures with sparse, lush instrumental enhancement. Tikao alternates from English to Te Reo - in particular her native Kai Tahu dialect from the South island.

With the assistance of Creative New Zealand, “From Dust to Light” was recorded at The Surgery, Wellington with Lee Prebble as engineer. Co-produced by Tikao, Prebble and Ben Lemi Wood, and mastered by Mike Gibson, the album is to be released on November 16th via DRM and Ode Records.

Below is a link to her new video for the single, ‘Te Heke’ created by Louise Potiki Bryant:
