Kimbra is a household name, not just in New Zealand, but all over the globe. Not bad, really, for a girl from Hamilton. Ladi6 is a Kiwi hip-hop artist who has a major following, not just in her homeland but around the world as well. She was born in Christchurch , in the South Island, and is of Samoan descent her cousin, by the way, is Scribe. The platinum-selling singer-songwriter, known primarily for her smooth, acoustic guitar songs and reflective, Christian-influenced lyrics, completely reinvented herself a few years ago. These days, her tracks continue to tap into the personal, but her sound is more influenced by electronic renditions.
