Dr Reknaw is a 7 piece entity that will take you on a journey through sound, a vibrational cleanse of dub, soul, funk & roots hop.

Founded by two sisters Julia & Sophie Cooper, Dr. Reknaw has grown into an empowering groove-machine sharing a vision of advocating for Mother Earth-Papatuanuku, plant medicine, social and radical justice , environmental justice & indigenous rights, honouring Tikanga Maori. Born & raised in Aotearoa these children of the sun use music as a medium to gather fellow human beings to connect back to the earth, soil- te whenua & the source.

Dr Reknaw shares messages from within & without through the sisters’ harmonious vocal pipes intertwining, alongside a fun, phat, enchanting horn section. All blended and held together by one of the stankiest rhythm sections of booty-shaking Bass, soul-moving Drums, bubbling Keys & psychedelic Guitar. With intention, Dr Reknaw will take you through the dimensions, inner & outer space ~ & you’ll land somewhere closer to yourself… a space to move your body if you wish & take your shoes off!
