Music = Aloha
Tani Waipa's musical family, Hawaiian roots and years in the Los Angeles jazz and big band scene come together to entertain audiences around the world and locally on the Big Island of Hawaii. Personal and cultural anecdotes round out performances with cohorts Darlene Ahuna and Duane Yamada for a lively offering of Hawaiian standards old and new.
Catch them every Monday evening at the Waikoloa Resort Kingsʻ Shops from 6-7PM, main stage, and Fridays at Hilton Grand Vacations Bay Club for poolside happy hour from 4-6PM.
After 16 years of performance in jazz, Hawaiian and various other genres in the Los Angeles area, Tani continues to provide local and resort clientele with music and entertainment services with her company, Hōkū Paʻa Productions on Hawai'i's Big Island. A graduate of the University of Hawaii at Hilo, Tani received additional musical and vocal training with professors at USC's Thornton School of Music.
