Best known for his work as a writer, director, actor, comedian, visual artist and craft-beer consumer, Taika Waititi is a man of many talents.

Hailing from Raukokore, the East Coast boy spent a lot of his time growing up in Wellington where he went on to study Drama at Victoria University.

Taika has written and directed some of the finest feature films to come out of New Zealand including Eagle Vs. Shark, BOY and What We Do in The Shadows with Jemaine Clement. His next feature Hunt for the Wilderpeople will be released early 2016.

Taika has directed some outstanding NZ music videos and is host of the 50th NZ Music Awards so we thought it only fitting he share his NZ music playlist with us.
