Kaumaakonga consists of musicians from across the Solomon Islands, predominantly from Mungava and Mungiki. They breathe new life into their Traditional Avaiki chants while combining traditional rhythms and percussion with panpipes, guitar and unique vocal harmonies.

KMK wants to take the listener on a sonic journey from the past and propel them to the future of modern/traditional Polynesian and Melanesian musical fusions.

With the support of their Elders and community members from these remote islands, KMK are working hard as forerunners in Avaiki music, and their passionate live performances have audiences moving right throughout the Pacific.

The recorded tracks of their debut album Taoba are a collection of diverse islands songs, including many traditional chants, re-arranged in their own unique genre, with wonderful harmonies and driving rhythms.
