UK / Kenyan songwriter Mara Simpson went to four other continents before appearing, on a whim in New Zealand. In no time she had a band of Wellington all-stars playing her songs, a single & music videos, gigs, tours and a sell-out three date showcase at Bats Theatre under her belt. Mara & the Bushkas first album “Live at Bats” is now out on independent release. Having just recorded a new Album with Warren Maxell at Stone Feather studio, Mara took the Bushka project to Berlin, touring solo throughout Europe.  This summer the band are reunited in their hometown Wellington to release ‘To the Sea sessions’ and play a host of dates in Aotearoa.
