TOITŪ TE WHENUA – CD (Limited Edition Fundraiser for Ihumaatao)
Musicians around Aotearoa have united together to produce an album inspired by Ihumātao and other issues that have impacted on ‘First Nations’ worldwide.
Multi-award winning singer and songwriter Maisey Rika was instrumental in pulling together the album, Toitū Te Whenua. She says, “There are so many of us feeling inspired to write and sing about the importance of the preservation of land, so we decided to take some action together by creating an album and putting on a concert. It is to honour our Ihumātao whānau, actually all our First Nation people taking a stand around the world for land and people.”
The album seeks to recognise Māori concepts, values and systems such as mana motuhake, mana whenua, mana moana and mana mokopuna.
“We started creating the album and in one week the response was overwhelming, so much so that we’re now creating a series of albums.” says Maisey.
Fellow contributor Rob Ruha adds, “The album has been a powerful opportunity for us to give voice to the voiceless.. and to elevate together above what we think we are capable of. Together, our voices are stronger.”
This product is an exclusive limited edition copy of the CD. All proceeds will go towards sustaining the ongoing protection of Ihumātao.
