Join us for an evening of Cacaito (cacao) and soulful sounds with the amazing Connie + Lucy leading us in cacaito ceremony following by the blissful ballards of River Roots.


River Roots are a vibrant mix of roots and alternative acoustic, with hints of folk and reggae beats, bringing diverse sounds and a playful uplifting vibe. Conscious, mind opening music delivered from the heart.
Fusion of their soulful harmonies and positive energy illuminates the stage. They share their musical journey together while bringing people together. The music is majorly influenced by a nomadic lifestyle and connecting with nature, with a positive uplifting message.

This Nomadic Duo tour internationally, performing at many UK festivals, including: Boomtown Fair, Beat-Herder, The Green Gathering, Boardmasters and Buddhafield.
River Roots catapulted into the New Zealand scene early 2017 with a tour across the North and South Island, performing at Aum’s Seuss Festival, Wanderlust Festival, Luminate Festival, Resonance Karamea Festival and the International Yoga Festival.
Some other World Wide Festivals include: Quest Festival (Vietnam), 420 Festival (Cambodia), Landjuweel Festival (NE), Nimbin Roots Festival (AUS) and Jam Festival (DE).

BBC Introducing – David White
“What voices River Roots have! ‘Destruction’s simple and frankly stunning. Nice job”

Quest Festival
“We’ve had River Roots play twice now at our festival and they have been nothing short of wonderful. Inspired lyrics with a really joyful vibe – they get the crowd going and are often named as a favourite act from our punters.”

Jump Ship Promotions – Niamh Mcgowan
“If ever there was an ep that was the perfect soundtrack to relaxing on a beach somewhere, this is it. With a soulful voice and a simple guitar sound ‘sight from inside’, the latest ep from Singer/songwriter Matt Montez, is the smoothest and lightest sound from an acoustic artist I have heard for a while.”






Connie Causa and Lucy Brooking are a CACAITO force, bringing their sweet soul elixirs to SOUL every Tuesday and to festivals and events around NZ.
