Natalie Ai Kamauu

With a voice of an angel, NATALIE AI KAMAUU, is Hawai`i’s best kept secret no longer. And it’s not just her voice, it’s her heart that is heard in every note and lyric. Captivating audiences internationally, Natalie’s voice has the ability to shake your soul.

Her three solo releases (`E, `I, `A) have garnered her three nods by The Hawai`i Academy of Recording Arts for Female Vocalist of The Year. Her release of Eia, an anthology, is an accumulation of the mele (songs) she has penned speckled with her favorite old time tunes. In 2015, she released her fifth solo release, La La La.
