Award winning Māngere born and raised music producer Matthew Faiumu Salapu (aka Anonymouz) worked with local Māngere-Ōtāhuhu talent to professionally record and produce a Compilation EP focused on documenting and celebrating local life, creatively depicting the local histories and stories, current situations and aspirations for the future.
Over 100 local participants, from emerging grassroots to established artists, primary and secondary schools, community groups and leaders from the Māngere and Ōtāhuhu area have contributed to the making of a combined Community music project and accompanying film.
Thank you to Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, Mangere Town Centre and Epiphany Pacific Trust for their support of this project.
A special thank you to the many voices of the community involved in this work so far.
