Mojo Juju is from Te Whenua Moemoeā, the land of dreamtime, Australia. She is an ARIA nominated artist who has experienced being labelled “other”. Of mixed Filipino and Aboriginal heritage, from the Wiradjuri people of NSW, her latest album Native Tongue is her most personal yet. It talks about being mixed race and, that feeling of straddling a line between where you belong and questioning if you are enough.
