Led by Kaitaataki Tane Te Awarahi Whanga and Kaitaataki Wahine Heeni Lee Morgan, Toto Kiore are the last team to perform at the Tainui regionals this evening.

Established in 2011, Toto Kiore have made appearances at the 2012-14 Tainui regionals as well as the 2014 Hauraki Festival.

The team are guided by the philosophy “Whaaia te kotahitanga – A call for unity amongst the Ngaati Apakura people” and are tutored by Nathan Whanga and Rodney Whanga.

Their Waiata-a-ringa, “E noho ana au i toku whare” is a love song about Raukura Hopa from Ngaati Wairere.
