Boh Runga is a dynamic creative force. Armed with a guitar, a sketchbook and a head full of ideas, Boh's creations flow from the stage to the streets.
2019 saw Boh celebrating with her band stellar* for the 20th Anniversary of their 5x platinum selling album Mix, re-released on Limited Edition coloured vinyl. A summer stint of shows throughout New Zealand culminated in a final show supporting 80’s legend Billy Idol at Western Springs.
Boh says of Aretha: “No one can sing like her, you’d be foolish to try. This is about a chance to pay tribute and bringing my own take on the legendary music of Aretha Franklin with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is both an honour and a challenge. I’m thrilled to have been asked to be a part of this."
