About this artist...
This soulful singer has an extensive range and finesse that puts her among the best female vocalists New Zealand has to offer.
Jacqui is no newcomer to the music scene and has opened
for a range of international acts, including Tina Turner,
Dudley Moore and Peter Andre.
She is also a judge on popular Maori TV show, Maorioke!
Jacqui Keelan’s latest release is all about what’s real for women. The lyrics are all in te reo Maori, the funky rhythms and music seem to reach right into your heart, and the soulful voice that holds it together is sublime, transcending language to become something you can almost feel.
This from Jacqui – “Wahine is a work that has been a lifetime in the making. It is born from personal experiences and observations. I believe that it will have a universal appeal for women.
“The album is designed to take the listener on an
emotional and spiritual journey. Each song has its own
spirit and its own story to tell. And at the end of the
journey, I hope that women will feel encouraged to find
and exercise their personal power.”
