Tribal Affiliations: Ngapuhi, Ngati Whaatua.
Claim to Fame: Brother of Jakey Davis. He is also a fine rugby football player and a super basketball representative too with a good academic record.

Hollywood Comment: And who is using more hair product than both Taylor Lautner and Justin Bieber put together, with mo tumeke staunch-pouting going on than tuakana Cliff Curtis in a 3D action movie role or brotha Taika Cohen in that Boy movie… in his high school leadership photos, then aye? Mr Maori Kiwi-Staunch. Congratulations Louis III.
Kia kaha. Be wise. Be yourself. Lead. :)

Kalani Jones (L) of Auckland – The Supercity poses with Lani.
The Samoan-Kiwi hottie looks like her late grandmother, Aunty Maina Werne-Jones - a lady who died in Kenya while on safari, and who had the distinction of having the second most-attended funeral in New Zealand history in 1997 of a Kiwi not born in the green paradise nation. As a woman of Samoa with Mana in The South Pacific, Maina Werne-Jones was down to earth, heavenly-minded, loving and much loved.
Aunty Maina as she was affectionately known, is still sorely missed by Auckland City, Samoa and throughout The Pacific today. Her laugh was magic. She laughed a lot, always sharing her smile and joie de vie with a rare gift of joyful encouragement.
Kalani also looks like her gorgeous momma, Judi Jones. Kalani’s dad, Derek Jones can be found here with Judi, doing their bit providing Samoan-Kiwi flava and inspiration at a transitional time for Porirua City leadership in Wellywood – Hollywood’s sister-city for 3D film making expertise.
Porirua is currently in the middle of a surprise bi-election, as the US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton has just recently touched down in Wellywood, a film making nation’s capitol city, at the time of writing from Hollywood. There’s a lot going on in New Zealand right now. It’s a hot diverse entertainment nation, destination.
At the top, of the North Island of New Zealand, Kalani lives in Auckland, The Supercity of this beautiful paradise-green nation.

Heading in to the Grey Lnn festival 2010, this one’s for US.
All men are created equal – Abraham Lincoln
Because we are equal, isn’t it time for Maori, Polynesian, Asian-Kiwi’s turn to lead with an expression unique for US all–Horiwood*
Quote on making the prestigious football squad – “Making this squad is the first step, but I still have to prove myself.”
Brotha! You are Hollywood, California approved. Sports needs entertainers.
Let’s go NYC! NZ! Cali! Action sports commerce stars are US.
Zoo York poetic politics today & Music by Nesian Mystik,
Poetic vibe: We sing of overcoming injustice, we sing of sharing, we sing of community, we sing of faith, we sing of never forgetting our roots of our Polynesian ghetto fairy tales and all we learned in these times. Our parents lying awake afraid at early Dawn light in Otara and Porirua, for the knock of the police on front and back doors. Or Aunties assembled in community of make-shift marae at Bastion Point, standing like noble warriors in our once ‘criminalness’ on our own land … For the longest time we have been cast kind of like Robin Hood heroes really, when you look at world politics and history.
Maybe our white brothers, saved us up to mull like fine Maori and Polynesia, vitner’s wine belonging to beautiful Aotearoa/ New Zealand. If so, their foresight was good. Their infrastructure needed. Now, we are required to be poured like the best wine, in this decade and the one’s beyond for all of our people. Not one excluded.
Colorful bouquet, nuanced cultures so rich, we are fine wine, a healing balm for the world. We have awoken to discover that the world has rapidly changed, suddenly – like Sonny Bill, switching codes and coming out on top last week, we find ourselves too at the world’s center, not by anything we did. But we are ready. Thanks Sonny Bill and coach Graham Henry for an important paradigm shift, an inspiring message of change, with one new team selection – and recognizing this global trend and what Maori and Polynesia have to offer the world forward.
*I think of “olive” as a color to ponder, like Ata Te Kanawa wrote about, being the future face of New Zealand. I think of olive’s (the food) eaten in the Middle East and Mediterranean alike. May this metaphor of peace, an “olive” be the pride and dignity of a teamwork spirit of equally shared mana, that defines the Kiwi spirit, vision, ability to serve, and our humor that can entertain, like few can. May what we have, be a healing balm in the Middle East too – like an olive branch we always extend. May the same attractant to heal and entertain also be commercially sought after from New York and California alike. Zoo York Nesian-Kiwis, let’s go. New wine time. From California, I feel your Kiwi spirit.

With a blend of sophisticated Island influences, Nesian Mystik‘s music would sit equally well on Obama‘s iPod in the White House or Oval Office, as well as throughout any South Pacific Island or on any marae in New Zealand too.
These Kiwi lads have subtle hori-nesian flow. Enjoy.

America’s #1 triple threat entertainer, Beyonce is currently vacationing with Jay-Z and family in beautiful Hawaii. That inspired me to re-run Polynesian boy band, Nesian Mystik‘s unique sounding, coco-licious music hit, Kiss Me ‘Til The Sun Goes Down. Hope you like it… they make you feel like you’re on vacation in Hawaii or the laid back, tropical Islands of the South Pacific when you listen to them. Love them!
This clip brought to you by Stop The World: Justin Bieber is in Beautiful New Zealand –where incidentally Nesian Mystik are based.

This post could also be titled How a Maui of New Zealand fished up his own legendary Hollywood story with music by New Zealand and Hawaii’s favorite Polynesian boy band, Nesian Mystik of Grey Lyn, where Russell Crowe also grew up. To reiterate my point, the video clip of when Russell won his Oscar and he references Auckland City in his star trajectory of Hollywoood history in his Oscars’ acceptance speech follows too in this post, for your entertainment. Russell grew up as a minority in Nesian Mystik’s hood. He is that Hollywood real. I love him for that realness.
This image of Mr Crowes block buster achieving Hollywood star represents the moment in Hollywood history where the first person of Maori descent and lineage, Russell Crowe was awarded his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Exciting!
Mauri Ola ya’ll. Yes We Can! :)

He’s world famous in Hollywood today, as he should be… and go J Williams and New Zealand R N B and Hip Hop music in the world. :) I See you hori-tastic nesian superstars!

Hawaii and the South Pacific‘s favorite Polynesian boyband, Nesian Mystik have produced another unique hit, titled Sun Goes Down to reflect life– Island styles. These lads met in music class in high school, and they have been making music now on the charts for over a decade. High school has never ended for them. A good story.
Polynesian hip hop inflects the uke with Marley’-esque reggae off-beat Carribean hip hop rhythms, with a touch of Island swing. Totally love these boys! Malo! And, Aloha Hawaii from Hollywood in the mainland.

It’s a case of “follow the leader” as the reigning box office king of Tinsel Town who created Avatar speaks… these days. Being Maori and living in Hollywood, I’m loving it! :)
Say’s film auteur, James Cameron, of the amazing Maori language of New Zealand and Polynesia in this latest interview:
”Paul Frommer is a linguistics expert at USC, and we hired him to create a language,” James Cameron says. ”He riffed off the 30 or so character names, place names, and creature names that I had come up with. They had a little bit of a Polynesian/Maori influence because of some time I had spent in New Zealand and in other places throughout Polynesia. So he used some Polynesian roots — but there’s also some African, there’s Native American, there’s even some bits from the Latin languages — and then he mixed it all up with German sentence construction, where the verb comes last. From an acting standpoint, the hard part was speaking English with a Na’vi accent. Zoë Saldana had the most lines, so we let her create the accent, and then everybody had to match her.”
For all you Avatar fans who want to know how the real Maori lads of Polynseia and the Pacific Islands roll. When we party, we kind of party like this in our hood… always about others, the collective and community… never solo.
Here’s some vintage Nesian Mystik old school, boy band sounds for your entertainment from Hollywood today. Chaa! Let’s pop it. Maoris and Poly boys are in the hot mix of the Hollywood house today. You know it! These lads a big hit in Hawaii, USA. Like James Cameron, Island dwelling people love Maoris and Polynesians. Enjoy. ;)

Nesian Mystik are the world’s favorite All Polynesian boy band from New Zealand.

Americans in Hawaii land, love love love these Coco-Polynesian, musical lads of hip hop and r n’ b, from down under. Hot!
Your thoughts? A duet with Ke$ha would be supa hot. We are allowed to Dream. :)

Nesian Mystik are the world’s favorite Polynesian hip hop boy band of great artists.
Think Ukulele sounds of Hawaii and the South Pacific meeting the Native American Indian peoples sense of tribal community to get a sense of who Nesian Mystik are with their musical sound.
They are from New Zealand and they rock. Here’s their song Brothaz (with a Z okay!!!) Enjoy! :)
I love these guys. Great music always. Hawaii loves them too. They are big stars in the US in Hawaii.

My favorite Polynesian hip hop brother veterans, Nesian Mystik are in the Horiwood Haus tonight in Los Angeles.
These lads music is tropical sweet, like coconut cream steamed buns for the soul, found on Oa’ahu’s West Coast side.
Lead singer Awanui Reader is a hori Maori brotha like me, who drops it Hawaiian styles. Sounding good fellahs in LA. Thanks for the Island chill hobbit music. :)
