Raiza Biza EPK


When Hamilton based Rwandan rapper Raiza Biza’s smooth baritone and contemplative storytelling blurs into the jazz/soul tinged beats he favours, it’s hard to not be swept away. Quickly, you're drawn into the story of a young Tupac, Mos Def and Talib Kweli loving immigrant who made New Zealand his home, while simultaneously reaching out to a global audience, and all through music.

Over four street albums and a relentless touring schedule, Raiza and his AmmoNation collective have entertained audiences nationwide, through to Europe and Australia, while reaching out to listeners overseas online. For this young talent, taking things to the next level feels inevitable. (Longer Bio Available at request)
