Biography

Ko Maungatautari te maunga Ko Waikato te awa Ko Tainui te waka Ko Ngāti Hauā me Ngāti Koroki ngā iwi Ko Te Rangitaupi te hapū Ko Tauwhare te marae Ko Wiremu Tamehana te tangata

Ko Adam Whauwhau tōku ingoa. I have two children Rākai-Hākeke and Māhaki. Te Reo Māori is their first Language. Tōku reo, tōku ohooho, tōku reo, tōku māpihi maurea, tōku reo tōku whakakai mārihi

Teaching is my profession, music is my passion and sports keeps me sane.

I went to Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato and Waikato Teachers College. My family and I have been involved in Māori Performing Arts since I was a teenager. Ko te ao Māori ko taku orangatonutanga – The Māori world is my life force.

I recorded my first album in 2001 and my second album in 2006.
Since then I have performed at many functions ranging from Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, School functions, Iwi Celebrations and many other Māori kaupapa.
