RNZ's Kirsten Johnstone's theme of her selection today is sisterhood, including a new EP from literal sisters Klara and Johanna Soderburgh - they perform under the name First Aid Kit. Kirsten also has music from Maori music collective Maimoa and ends with an 80s stadium rock inspired by the suffrage movement - Sisters are Doin it for Themselves by Eurythmics, sung alongside Aretha Franklin.
