Yannika Tavai – NZ Music Show Host
Born in Auckland City, but with roots from Niue and the Cook Islands, Yannika adds a bit of pacific flavour to the Base team.
Yannika’s love of music pushed her to change careers from working in corporate IT for over 10 years and into the music industry in late 2018. She studied Artist Management at MAINZ, is a current member of the Music Managers Forum, works with MADCAP as an Artist Liaison and most importantly, is a full time Mum to her precious little one, Aiko.
Her taste in music spans across most genres representing Hip Hop, Soul, Funk and RnB both locally and internationally and she’s also a bit of a movie nerd!
You can hear her live on Native Tongues every Monday 3pm-4pm for the latest tracks from local up and coming artists.
