Raiatea Mokihana Maile Helm set the Hawaiian music community on fire at age 18, with the release of her debut CD Far Away Heaven in 2002. Her pure, clear voice makes her a natural performer of leo ki`eki`e (Hawaiian falsetto). She is now recognized as one of Hawai‘i’s premier female vocalists and a keeper of the Hawaiian falsetto tradition of the early to mid-20th century. Accompanying herself on ‘ukulele, Raiatea interprets traditional Hawaiian songs with the mastery and control of a jazz vocalist and has been heralded as the successor to such Hawaiian music greats as Aunty Genoa Keawe. She has earned 6 Na Hoku Awards (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”) including Female Vocalist of the Year and Favorite Entertainer, and made Hawaiian history by becoming Hawaii’s first-ever solo female vocalist to be nominated for a Grammy©.
