About the Artist

The WHIRI TŪ AKA concept - A strong reflection of cultural pride.

Formed in 2012 WHIRI TŪ AKA is an Aotearoa based traditionally inspired Māori language concept.

WHIRI TŪ AKA is the coming together of traditional values, creativity, innovation, uniqueness, authenticity, quality and Wairua forming a strong fine or plait.

A distinctive Māori voice that is traditional in its inspiration, creativity, innovation and that is unique, authentic and sounds like where it originates Aotearoa (New Zealand).

These are the qualities that are the essence and the sound of WHIRI TŪ AKA.

Ehara, taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa, takimano"
My strength is not of an individual, but that of the collective.
