Kamauu blew into Hawai‘i’s music scene in 2005, imme- diately turning heads and perking up ears with her breakout album ʻĒ. The title itself said it all: extraordinary. With a voice of an angel, her soaring melodies will whisk listeners to heights and depths of musical emotion. Though her sound is sweet and seemingly effortless, don’t be mistaken — she’s a powerhouse vocalist.
