Meet The Muso - Saia Latu

Updated: Aug 13, 2018

Based in Airlie Beach, Total Entertainment is the go to booking agent for live entertainment in the Whitsundays. Locally owned and operated Total Entertainment has an ever evolving group of artists that specialise in performances for weddings and corporate events and playing gigs for the local community. TE book for some of the Whitsundays top night spots, venues and events and provide the region with some of Queensland and Australia’s best live acts.

As the faces of our musicians are recognised around town from their performances at venues such Boaty's, Northerlies Beach Bar & Grill & Hemingway's, we thought it was time to introduce some of our artists in a more personalised setting and peel back some layers to show the people behind the music.

First up, meet Saia Latu. Hailing from Auckland New Zealand, Saia made the move to Airlie beach 3 years ago. Although having always been interested in music, Saia became disheartened by the industry and came to Australia to escape it, only to land right back into it - a fate that he has welcomed and begun to flourish in once again.

SAIA LATU has years of experience as a session musician, writer and solo artist in his own right. He is well travelled, having toured extensively with some of the most renowned reggae artists of the modern day such as Katchafire, J Boog and Sun Salute performing at large festivals such as One love Festival in NZ and Woodford Folk festival in AUS among many others.

In the past year Saia has decided step into the solo scene, and with countless hours of practice and rehearsals he has honed his craft to produce a unique sound featuring keyboards, vocals, samples, beatbox and guitar.

With genres ranging from 90s R&B/Hip Hop to Reggae, Modern Pop and everything in between, his style is a reflection of both his musicianship and influences.

We hope you enjoy this vid of one of our favourite people (and musicians). Saia is a warm hearted, gentle man with and infectious laugh and oodles of talent!
