Celebrating the music of South Auckland.

Volume South @ MIT

Volume South has now closed.

Fed by street culture, church choirs, R ‘n’ B clubs and hip-hop, the story of South Auckland music is an explosive mix of hustle, talent and originality.

Volume South at MIT tells this story in the South Auckland edition of our home-grown exhibition about making music in Aotearoa.

Volume South at MIT champions the artists and scenes that represent Southside pride. Emerging talent is featured alongside the early trailblazers including Urban Pacifika Records, the Fuemana family, Dawn Raid Entertainment and Ōtara Music Arts Centre, which had a key role in cultivating local artists.

This is our second offsite exhibition in partnership with Auckland Museum and Manukau Institute of Technology at MIT’s Manukau Campus, and we acknowledge the guidance and help of the Volume South Advisory Panel: Anonymouz, Phil Bell, Nadia Marsh, Ryan Monga, Graham Reid, Gene Rivers, Mark Roach, Abbie Rutledge, Noma Sio-Faiumu and Petrina Togi-Sa’ena MNZM.
