“Review from Harbour Light Theatre show: Unique styles to enjoy (The Press, 22 May 2010, Page 17) by Chris Pole. Hannah Howes and Ariana Tikao have combined their talents to tour New Zealand together through May and June, taking in many smaller towns. Beginning last night in Christchurch they opted for the cosy confines of Lyttelton, bringing their unique styles to the atmospheric Harbour Light Theatre. Both artists fleshed out their songs with keyboards, percussion, and backing vocals, accompanied by multiinstrumentalist Ben Lemi Wood and Nanako Sato, who opened proceedings with four songs of her own.”
