Josh Tatofi.

Josh Tatofi was born and raised in Honolulu and has been singing in public since he was 13. Now 30, he’s on tour and coming to Wellington. With idols like Luther Vandross and Peabo Bryson, Josh brings his mix of soulful ballad writing and Polynesian heritage to The Opera House. 

Described as world music and rhythm and blues, his output has earned him multiple awards in Hawaii. His famous songs include ‘You’re the Best Thing’, ‘For the Lāhui’, and ‘Ku’u Leo Aloha’. In 2018 he earned a nomination for a Grammy Award for his album ‘Pua Kiele’ in the Regional Roots category. In New Zealand, Josh won ‘Best International Pacific Artist’ at the 2020 Pacific Music Awards. 

Come along and listen to the gentle sound of the Pacific. The guitars will strum and you’ll be transported from a Kiwi winter to a Hawaiian beach.
