Starr Kalahiki

Starr Kealaheleokalani Kalahiki is a Hawaiian singer, born and raised in Moanalua Valley on the island of Oʻahu. Her professional experiences range from featured vocalist on productions including Don Tiki, Myth, Naupaka, The Liliʻu Project and ʻUlalena, to bands Eight-o-eight, Missing Dave, and Toyz of Pleasure. Her debut album Salt was honored with two Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards and she received a third as a contributor to Henry Kapono’s compilation album. Starr is also the recipient of a Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellowship.     “In the first stanza of Ke aloha o ka haku, a prayer Liliʻuokalani wrote while under house arrest, my heart finds solace in realizing she wrestled with navigating the delicate balance between spirit, culture and faith, and that in her songs, I too am allowed the space to find my own balance.  As I move forward, I view every occasion I sing as an opportunity to lay down positive vibration, and encourage healing.”
