Hey, I'm Aroha - you're probably here because you know a bit about what I do, but here's a little bit more info about me and this blog.
I'm a Maori girl from a small town in New Zealand called Masterton, but I've called Auckland city home for well over a decade.
Music is what drives me and I've worked in the NZ music industry for a loooong time. Mainly as a DJ and radio and TV host, but also in marketing and education. My career has allowed me to travel to some pretty amazing places around the world, for which I'm so grateful.
Currently I'm on a personal journey; learning how to produce my own music and focusing on all the other things that me happy: writing, fitness, fashion, beauty, art, travel and interviewing people who I'm inspired and excited by.
This blog is a place for me to share with you the music that I'm loving but also interviews, my own stories, and experiences that I think you should try. Sometimes I might get a bit deep with the feelings; hopefully I'll also make you laugh.
Haere mai (welcome) and thanks for joining me.
