Lake Wanaka SouNZ Inc

Set up in 1997, Lake Wanaka SouNZ is an incorporated society with the aim of promoting New Zealand music. No profit was made until 2000, and since then LWSI have taken the opportunity to assist where it is able, in particular into the areas of community, music, education, youth, and the environment.

In 2010, SOUNZ FORZA started up. Featuring guest tutors from Shapeshifter, The Mint Chicks, The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties, AHoriBuzz, TrinityRoots and more, Sounz Forza provides songwriting, performance and production workshops to students and adults.
