Mau Power - Koiki

Mau Power - Koiki
Mau Power is the first rapper to emerge from the rich musical traditions of the Torres Strait, a local leader and a lyrical storyteller at the crossroads of Indigenous and hip-hop culture.

Koiki is the story he was born to take to the nation and to the world, a celebration of the historic victory of his countryman Eddie Mabo in overturning the fiction of terra nullius and advancing the cause of indigenous land rights.

Mau Power (born Patrick Mau) is a Dhoebaw man of the Guda Malullgal nations, greatly respected as a voice of empowerment and inspiration among the people of the Torres Strait.
He was the clear choice of Eddie Mabo's daughter, Auntie Gail Mabo, to sing the song she wrote as an ode to her late father five years ago, on the 20th anniversary of the Mabo ruling.

About this track...

Koiki opens with the arresting fanfare of the Conch Shell, the resolute march of handclaps and a spoken report of the 1992 Mabo ruling, describing a courageous freedom fighter who challenged the most powerful laws of the country. BVs by Radical Son and Benny Walker emphasis the circle of solidarity.
