David Dallas (formerly known as Conpsy of Frontline) & Aaradhna
We're taking it back to the 2006 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards with one of our favourite performances by two Pacific Island artists who at the time were just breaking on to the scene.
Backed by a live band and strings, Aaradhna lends her amazing vocals to Davids track 'Lost in Translation' which talks about the relationship between him and his deaf brother.
"Real Men stand up, they are proud of their fam, are there for their fam,
Won't leave 'em, care for their fam, and David isn't there, I symbolised everything that isn't fair
But now, I see this blessing wasn't just for me to use,
We speak without ears, I was put here to hear for you"
Frontline went on to win 'Best Urban Hip Hop album' for their album 'Borrowed Time' that night.
