Riveting performer Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole is the voice of contemporary Hawaiian music.
Drawing from ancestral memory and hula practice, she engages indigenous thought to address today’s issues.
Through music, chant and sharing of spirit the modern transgender Hawaiian (mahu wahine) is a vibrant keeper of culture. With plenty of humour, Kaumakaiwa seamlessly melds Hawaiian culture and modern sensibilities into deeply powerful music.
