Upper Hutt Posse
Declaration of Resistance

[ Kia Kaha / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 24 October 2011

'Declaration of Resistance' is the anticipated seventh album from Upper Hutt Posse, a 13-song musical manifesto of socio-political consciousnes which has been three years in the making.

In the spirit of protest against tyranny the music is a distinctive rap-reggae-funk-soul fusion, highlighting their flair and musical sophistication. The band continue their kaupapa (objective/purpose) of raising consciousness, unrelenting in their momentum to address global imperial capitalist culture.

2011 is a pivotal year for Upper Hutt Posse. Now a seven-piece live band with leader Te Kupu transformed as rhythm guitarist/vocalist, MC Wiya on bass and vocals, and Blue Dread on percussion and vocals, they are joined by newcomers Des Mallon on drums, John Henare (keyboards), Jeff Henderson (alto saxophone) and Jeremy Coubrough (tenor saxophone).
