WIN: Anika Moa Chop Chop Hiyaaa!

WIN tickets to Anika Moa’s kick ass kids show Chop Chop Hiyaa, which she is performing as part of the Auckland Arts Festival this March.



She will light up rooms with waiata while captivated kids squeal, sing and dance. With dimpled cheeks and dancing eyes, she’ll croon, “chop, chop, chop, hiyaaaa.” There will be ninja movements to partner the whoops of “hiyaa”. Witches and taniwha might gobble up little girls, and a rat will chop under the moonlight. What’s going on? It’s all part of the upcoming Auckland Arts Festival, where Anika Moa will roll out her hugely popular 45-minute show, Chop Chop Hiyaaa! Successfully debuting in 2016, it’s a no-holds-barred display of awesome chaos, and it’s close to her heart.


The brains behind Chop Chop Hiyaaa can be traced back to Anika’s obsession with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As a teen, she prized all things TMNT and was reunited with the comic a few years ago when visiting a friend and her young son in London. Over a shared love of the characters, her inspiration came from Splinter, the rat. An honourable creature, Splinter fights evil, is highly intelligent and excellent at Ninjutsu. Such attributes became the perfect breeding ground for Anika’s award-winning albums, ‘Songs for Bubbas’, and ‘Songs for Bubbas 2’. The mission behind the albums was to soothe babies, calm toddler tantrums and offer a little reprieve for parents.
