New Zealand-based indie folk duo, Lhasa, are the result of two completely different worlds colliding. One from a sleepy, small city in New Zealand, while the other grew up in one of the biggest cities in China. The duo come together as a marriage of different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences to create something unique, punchy, and eager to be heard.
Samuel and Micaela met at music school and began writing songs together in 2017, forming Lhasa. After penning their first song, ‘Birdsong’, they knew that they were onto something special. Like the coming together of two completely different lives, their music is a combination of an organic acoustic sound and a penchant for rock music. Their striking harmonies and poetic songwriting provide an immersive, emotional experience.
Lhasa have played gigs and festivals throughout the Waikato and Auckland regions. Their energy and presence keep people coming back for more as they deliver their songs with skill and an unashamed authenticity.
