Rob Ruha is a powerhouse of progressive Māori music in Aotearoa (NZ). Inspired by generations of master song writers that came before him, Rob sings of indigenous truth with uplifting resolution where denigration and oppression once held residence. With a string of award winning collaborative albums and features under his belt since his last solo album 'SURVIVANCE', Rob's third and highly anticipated album entitled 'PRESERVATION OF SCENERY' hit the world on October 8, 2021. A musical ombre of RnB and Soul, Preservation of Scenery sits in the current pocket of popular music, with something to say. Contagious ideas, as catchy as the melodies and hooks, this album aims to inspire and uplift Indigenous truth. Infused with throwback undertones, sing-along tunes teeming with harmony, Rob Ruha’s unique Māori music signature is present in every corner of this record. Preservation Of Scenery is a result of an intentional creative pause and collaborations with co-writers, producers and artists like Rory Noble, KINGS, The Halluci Nation (Formerly A Tribe Called Red), Jon Lemmon and Tyna Keelan. The album is a musical testimony to what Rob Ruha is already acclaimed for, just reborn inside of his new and exciting sonic evolution. "These are the songs I have always wanted to write and the sounds I have always wanted to explore. The new album is me now."
