Kia Ora…Welcome to Salmonella

World She Waits


Salmonella Dub launch their 25th single to celebrate 25 years.

Driving Aunt Daisy to meet Nino’s People became the working title for Salmonella Dub’s 25th single World She Waits launched this week to celebrate the beginnings of the bands 25th birthday. The tune became a collaboration with Nino Birch from Beat Rhythm Fashion.

World She Waits Nino’s lyric was inspired by global issues, corporate greed and land right clashes both here in Aotearoa and with the tribes affected by the Dakota pipeline.

This show features the return of Tiki Taane plus their good mates Fat Freddies Drop, Trinity Roots, Ladi 6, Sunshine Soundsystem and Soulware. The track will also be released at the 25th single in a bundle of 25 radio cuts aptly named Commercial Grates to celebrate the band’s 25 years of music mahi in Aotearoa. Many of these cuts were never made available digitally when the band were under their licence contract with Virgin EMI.
