Jen Cloher: “Harakeke”

A celebration of their matrilineal line of wāhine Māori, Ko Au Te Awa, Ko Te Awa Ko Au / I Am The River, The River Is Me is the just-released fifth LP from Jen Cloher, a tremendously-talented musician from Naarm (Melbourne). This is its sonorous, cyclical and celebratory “Harakeke”. You can buy Pounamu green-vinyl, white-marble-vinyl, CD and bundled versions as well as a book of their poems from Bandcamp, and it’s available from their own Milk! Records as well.
