'Oho Ake – Rise Up' Edgecumbe Flood Relief Concert Photos
The Edgecumbe flood of 2017 caused widespread damage, when the stopbank burst and released a river into the township. Thousands of outed residents have had to leave their homes, and the worst of the have seen it condemned.
A troupe of local people has banded together and put on this concert for the local people, to not only raise money, but also raise spirits – the mauri – of the people.
I had the pleasure of contributing to the event as photographer. I have posted a select few below.
