On his trio's new album “Ki 'a Lavaka”, Joel delves into the music from his country of birth for the first time paying homage to the long line of well-respected Havea songwriters from the tropical island Kingdom, going back many generations. The result is a reflection of his roots as a true world citizen, adding another element to his already eclectic style.
Since relocating to Europe, Joel has played hundreds of solo and trio shows (with the @JoelHaveaTrio) in over 20 countries, spanning 4 continents. In the process he has become a fixture on the festival and club circuit, with performance highlights including Bardentreffen World Music Festival (Nürnberg), Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg), London Folk Festival, Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival (Australia), Copenhagen Songwriters Festival (Denmark), and the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
