Aurenda – Dancing Ghosts
“Aurenda are a unique EDM / hip hop oriented band, originally formed in Auckland, New Zealand. They’ve held a solid foundation for over 15 years, touring, playing live shows and recording numerous e.p’s and singles under various names.
More brothers then friends the kinetic energy that comes from these boys is second to none, which shows in any performance captured live or in the studio. The band are perhaps best known for their high energy shows, engaging lyrics, and powerful performances.
The meaning of the name is a blend of two words.
Aura – the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place
Orenda – the invocation of the power of human will to change the world around us. It is set up to be the opposing force to fate or destiny. If powerful forces beyond your control are trying to force you one way, orenda is a kind of voiced summoning of personal strength to change fate.”
This song is a tribute to those of their friends and whanau that have passed well before their time was due. And to their tupuna who paved the way for them.
