Unleashed and unbridled, TANIWHA, from Mika Haka is; Serpent of the South Seas, a futuristic tribal trance haka boxed in, smashing towards its own eternal freedom from western sexual oppression and thought, suppressed by a global illuminati.

New Zealand is a land of no dangerous animals, reptiles or beasts, yet beneath the fathomless depths of the pacific lie dragons and serpents that wait, simmering for their time… This is TANIWHA
