Aunty Genoa


How does one describe a legend?

Aunty Genoa Keawe has not only entertained multiple generations with her limitless talent and contributed greatly to Hawaiian music's form and substance, she has given us a family of talented performers and encourages any who seek her guidance.

You'd never know it, but this indelible treasure was born in 1918 and her birthday parties each October at the hotel where she performs have become very hot tickets. Other than her hair color, Aunty Genoa seems to have changed little from her early days. Her voice, if anything, has gotten richer with the years.

She has been honored and interviewed so many times over the years, rather than try to encompass Aunty Genoa's career and life here, please check the following sources:
