SNARE ‘Leasing Lingos’ ft. Hamokane, Kas tha Feelstyle & G-Fes
This week’s Local Eyes is from New Zealand born Sāmoan rapper, musician and songwriter ‘SNARE’. “Leasing Lingos”(feat. Hamokane, Tha Feelstyle & G-Fes) is taken from his debut EP ‘SĒKI‘.
Snare and producer Anonymouz met through Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s international award winning programme “APO Remix” in 2015, where SNARE was a participant and Faiumu was the programme’s Music Director. Both born and raised in South Auckland, both Sāmoan and both with a passion for Hip Hop and Sāmoan/ Pacific Island music, their first collaborative studio session resulted in SNARE’s well received debut single “Vodka & Vaniah” released in 2017, a positive outcome which inspired them to continue working together.
Loosely translated, “seki” is an urban Sāmoan slang term that implies “cool”, “awesome” and other similar positive affirmations.
