With strong ties to Ngāti Kahu ki Whangaroa, a Melbourne-based music artist Jen Cloher is excited to release her new single 'Mana Takatāpui' which delves deep in to the meaning and history of takatāpuitanga, a Māori term describing the sexuality of an individual. The inspiration behind the song comes from being Māori and being proud of her takatāpuitanga.
