EXCLUSIVE: Rob Ruha & The Witch Dr ‘KALEGA’ video premiere

The Spinoff presents the video premiere of Rob Ruha & The Witch Dr’s ‘KALEGA’, featuring Michael Jackson street dancer Shaun Lindsay and members of Te Kapa Haka o Te Whānau a Apanui.  

Rob Ruha says:

‘KALEGA’ is the perfect summer anthem and a hot festival jam. It’s a song about the great Aotearoa summer pilgrimage back to the beach to chill, unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the city. No matter where you’re from, what you’re day job is or what language you speak, everyone can relate to that!

Picture glistening coastal views, fresh fish and chips after a swim, ice cream stops and BBQ’s on the beach while your favourite jams ring out the car window and you have ‘KALEGA!’ An upbeat waiata that celebrates a unique slice of Aotearoa heaven – the East Coast, where the word ‘Kalega’ is as legendary as a kina tongue on bread!

Rob Ruha & The Witch Dr’s new album SURVIVANCE, set for release on is out 1 December.
