As the Bay Area’s premier female artist in Traditional/Contemporary Hawaiian music, Faith Ako has graced the west coast with her powerful voice, charismatic personality and passion for Hawaiian music for over two decades. Her fourth album Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha landed number 8 in Mele.com's top 12 selling Hawaiian music albums. Her sultry voice whisks you to the islands with original songs and Hawaiian classics.
Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha, “speaks to my birthplace on the windward side of O‘ahu where my 15 brothers, sisters and I were raised and where my heart is truly at peace,” said the singer. The CD includes six original compositions, “it was important to me that I weave together stories and memories of my home - the fragrances, the sounds, the sights, and the beauty of the islands. And of course, I’ve included some of my favorite hula standards, which are a must!”
Catch one of the Rohnert Park resident's performances as 4 library locations this spring! Fun for the whole family, Faith Ako brings the music and sounds of Hawai’i to shores far beyond the islands!
