Aaradhna live at the RNZ studios

From NZ Live, 2:24 pm on 30 September 2016

Aaradhna made her musical debut 12 years ago as guest vocalist on the chart-topping single by Adeaze 'Getting Stronger'.

The Porirua-born R&B artist has since gone on to record four studio albums, the last two both reaching number one on the New Zealand album chart.

For her new album Brown Girl, Aaradhna has collaborated with Truth and Soul, the Brooklyn-based label and production team responsible for records from Amy Winehouse, Adele and Lee Fields and The Expressions.

RNZ music reviewer Nick Bollinger has described the result as "truly great", with the title track having "soul on every level".

Aaradhna is joined here by Jeremy Toy on guitar, Chip Matthews on bass and Tom Broome on drums.
