The adage “there’s no place like home” certainly rings true in the case of Connan Mockasin.

Having toured the furthermost reaches of the globe showcasing his sophomore album Caramel, Mockasin took to his family home in the small coastal village of Te Awanga for some much needed R’n’R.

After a sneaky pre-Laneway performance in his hometown, Zac Arnold caught up with Mockasin and met with some of the people who keep the home fires burning.
