  • 17 October 2014 6:30pm

As the Bay Area’s premier female artist in Traditional/Contemporary Hawaiian music for more than a decade, Faith Ako has long graced the West Coast with her amazing and soothing voice.

She won two Hawaiian Music Awards for her first album Kukahi, and her second album, Papaku Bring It Home, earned Faith a Hawaiian genre Grammy entry in 2010.

Faith’s third album, Kulaiwi, was  released  at Pono in August, 2013

Over the years, Faith has made special guest appearances at Pakele Live in Honolulu, and The Maui Prince Hotel in Kihei. She has also performed in various Hawaiian Festivals, Ukulele Retreat Workshops, and has given live radio interviews on local stations in California and throughout Hawaii. Faith has played to sold-out audiences in California at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, The Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, Yoshi’s in both San Francisco and Oakland, The de Young Museum in San Francisco, Whittier College in Los Angeles, and Dougherty Performing Arts Center in San Ramon. Faith continues to delight the crowds with her sultry voice and passion for Hawaiian music. Listening to Faith’s leo nahenahe, will conjure the essence of island Aloha without ever leaving home.

Hula dancers are certainly invited to participate, as I’m told that dancing to Auntie Faith’s melodic sounds is indeed a treat
