About

Descending from Te Tai Tokerau, Tauranga Moana and Ngati Kahungunu ki Te Wairoa, award-winning Maori neo soul, pop funk artist, MOHI has enchanted global audiences with his mesmerizing music. With a profound connection to his cultural heritage, MOHI seamlessly blends neosoul, pop and funk with Maori influences, creating a captivating sound that resonates deeply. His upcoming Album “Elements of Aroha” is highly anticipated as he continues to push musical boundaries and explore his artistic voice.

From humble beginnings, MOHI's talent has garnered critical acclaim and industry recognition. He was awarded the title of Most Promising Emerging Artist of 2022 at the prestigious Waiata Maori Music Awards, solidifying his rising star status. Additionally, his exceptional work as a songwriter has earned him recognition as a finalist for both the coveted APRA Silver Scrolls Award and the APRA Maioha Award at this year’s APRA Silver Scrolls, showcasing his lyrical prowess and musical artistry.

MOHI has played all across Aotearoa-New Zealand at festivals like Waitangi Day at Treaty Grounds, annual Pasifika Festival, Waiata Maori Live showcase and more. He has mesmerised audiences overseas at the annual Good Juju Festival in Melbourne and more recently, MOHI showcased his reo discography at this year’s Big Sound conference in Brisbane, Australia.

Infusing his music with Maori language, traditional instruments, and thought-provoking lyrics, MOHI uses his platform to celebrate his heritage and language within the music scene. Beyond the stage, he is a passionate advocate for his hapu in Te Tai Tokerau and is heavily involved in marae operations as part of the rangatahi working committee for his marae. His upcoming Album promises to be a remarkable showcase of his artistic growth, an elevated sound opening a new realm for reo Maori music.
