Authentic Hawaiian Singer

Growing up with her family on the island of Molokai, Raiatea gained a deep love and appreciation for her surroundings and culture. Today, she strives to share her experiences and knowledge of Hawaiʻi’s rich history through traditional song and dance.

She is musically trained in the style of “leo ki’eki’e” (Female falsetto), and is currently working towards creating a University Degree in Musicology with an emphasis in Hawaiian music, language and culture. Eventually, she hopes to teach future generations and to encourage others to preserve the authenticity of mele “Hawaiian Music.”

Raiatea’s success as an artist also includes many prestigious awards including 2 Grammy nominations, 6 Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards, and Native Arts & Cultures Fellowship.
