Hokianga, Ngāti Tuwharetoa

"Music in the home and in our everyday space impacted and influenced my life."

Kapa haka helped Reo to realize his strength in composition.

"Writing and composing an album isn’t easy. Exposing one’s thoughts is courageous. Accolades are nice, but receiving a message from someone who’s life has been impacted because of the music. That’s a win. "

To be creative is one thing, to live your life and build a career from it is special.

To be a Māori creative it’s phenomenal.

Singer/songwriter Te Reotakiwa Dunn won a Tui (NZ Music Award) for Best Maori Album in 2006 with this self titled album.
