1. "Aotearoa is the most widely known and accepted Māori name for New Zealand. The original derivation of Aotearoa is not known for certain. However, the word can be broken up as: ao = cloud, tea = white and roa = long, and it is therefore usually glossed as "the land of the long white cloud"." -wikiwkikwi
2. Aotearoa (A-O-TAY-UH-ROW-UH), the two-man jungle-funk explosion have built their reputation on endless touring. Pointing the van Westward in 2010, the forty subsequent states and countless stages have have brought into the world their debut LP "STRANGE WEATHER." Heralded by the band as an American ode to booty-sweat and a drunken eulogy to apathy, the songs are seasoned by the highway and only truly come alive in person.
The guitar / drum duo is comprised of mufti-instrumentalists Jacob Lerman and Ilan Gitter who by way of sample free live-looping and a notoriously raucous live show have managed to take the familiar dance-rock form back to it's long dormant animalistic roots.
