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©.
