The voice of Hawaii’s new generation. Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole impressive vocal range mixes baritone chant and Hawaiian falsetto singing.
We are delighted to have Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole in Vancouver. Her family roots in hula and Hawaiian cultural practices have been passed down for seven generations. She honours these traditions by creating music that draws directly from ancestral memory, and is “not simply Western song with Hawaiian lyrics.” In 2013, she began identifying as female and later performed with her mother, Kekuhi, in the first mother-transgender daughter performance duo in Hawaiian music.
