Hohou Te Rongo: Cultivate Peace (CD)
Hohou Te Rongo: Cultivate Peace – By Whirimako Black
Contemporary Māori music. Experience the magic of this ground breaking Māori artist.
Whirimako, of Ngai Tuhoe, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngati Ranginui, Kahungunu, Te Whakatohea, Te Whanau-a-Apanui, Te Arawa, and Ngati Awa descent, has performed throughout the country and has six solo albums to her credit.
Whirimako says the inspiration for this album came from her daughter, Mihi Ki Te Kapua. “My whanau (family) are my puna – my source,” she explains. “Each whanau member has a quality and values that fits in with me. In each area, they come through and tautoko (support) me. We all love music and I value all their opinions.”
