Sol3 Mio out-sells Lorde


Teenage singer Lorde has made the top of the charts internationally, but Auckland opera trio Sol3 Mio have taken the best-selling album in New Zealand.

. . . Despite it only being on sale for five weeks, it is the No. 1 selling album on this week’s Recorded Music New Zealand chart and the No. 1 selling New Zealand album for 2013.

The Samoan-New Zealand group is made up of brothers Amitai and Pene Pati, and cousin Moses Mackay. . .

You can watch. and listen to a Tagata Pasifika profile of the trio here.

Look, listen


The Pati, Pene and Amitai,  brothers have amazing tenor voices.

Their parents brought them from Samoa to give them better opportunities and they’re getting them.

TVNZ has the story – and their singing – here.
