California-born and Australian based roots artist Manoa brings the summer vibes by weaving uplifting reggae grooves that inspire audiences to move and soothing folk melodies that calm the mind and inspire a contemplative flow.
Manoa creates a powerful dynamic and unquestionable presence through his music as audiences are inspired by the positive messages of re-connection to nature, personal growth and transformation.
​‘Change Is In The Air’ the latest single off of Manoa's new EP released in 2019, embodies the message of cultural transformation toward a regenerative society and features Bobby Alu (Xavier Rudd, Oka) on drums. The music video was shot live at Island Elements Festival and the Pacific Earth School on Stradbroke Island, Australia and is reminiscent of Manoa's early musical experiences, growing up sailing around the Caribbean islands, soaking in the island rhythms.
​​Manoa has shared his music at a range of folk festivals including Splendour In The Grass (2016), Mullum Music Festival (2019), Earth Frequency Festival (2020), and Wallaby Creek Festival (2019). He has supported and played alongside roots artists including Dustin Thomas (USA), Caravana Sun, Oka, Nicky Bomba and Murray Kyle.
​ "A groover, a maker, a DR (PhD - excuse me!). Bring on the vibes of summer.”
- Nkechi Anele (Triple J Roots 'n All)
