Keahi has been filled with the music and movement of her Hawaii culture since birth. She has been deeply influenced by her ohana (family). And her hula, songs, and stories bring the essence of her homeland.
In Hawaiian, the name Keahi means the fire and guiding light.
Her calling as a performing artist started when her grandaunt of full Hawaiian descent gave Keahi her first ukulele at seven years old. From that day, her natural abilities blossomed as she entered a deep immersion in her indigenous culture with Hawaiian elders, musical artists, and hula dance teachers. Through the years, Keahi has become an ambassador for the Aloha spirit to people around the world.
Through her songs and dance, you will feel the warmth of trade winds blowing on Hawaii beaches. You will hear the laughter and joy of all those who taught her. And if you listen carefully, you will hear the voices of her ancient ancestors speaking to you.
Today, her performances bring song and dance from more traditional Hawaiian culture and contemporary musical genres— Island Music, R&B, Rock Balladry, Pop, and Country. Whatever she is singing, you hear her rich, heart-opening voice and the rhythm of the ukulele. You feel the heartbeat of the islands.
Keahi’s light-heartedness shines through her songs, stories, and hula. Through it all, you feel a deeply- rooted spirituality and her commitment to transform and uplift the human experience. You touch an ancient wisdom. And if you have the opportunity to attend one of her performances, you will leave knowing that you have been changed and refreshed by the spirit of Hawaii.
As an equity advocate, I am dedicated to culturally and linguistically diverse responsive teaching. My hope is to exposure multicultural education in our schools and engaging in conversations with our community. In my spare time, you can find me spending time with my family, rockhounding, meditating, or doing yoga.
