Raiatea Helm is one of the most popular recording artists in Hawai`i.
She is the multi award winner of the prestigious Na Hanohano Hawai`ian music awards for her CDs.
She has an amazing talent. Her voice is incredible.! Pure, clear and sublime.
Her first CD release "Far away Heaven" (5 Stars) shot her to fame in Hawai`i and across the World.
This is a fantastic CD of stunning traditional hula mele. Accompanied by Hawai`i`s best musicians.
When listening to this gorgeous tropical music you are transported to Paradise. The Hawai`ian Islands.
If you love Hawai`i and want to hear the sound of Hawai`i now. This is extremely recommended. A must buy.
Her second CD release "Sweet & Lovely" (5 Stars) is equally as beautiful. More gorgeous traditional hula mele.
Accompanied by dreamy Hawai`ian steel guitar and ukulele. A must buy.
Her third CD release "Hawai`ian Blossom" (5 Stars) is a more varied selection of styles of traditional
hula mele and hapa haole songs. The pace is overall slower with musical accompaniments of guitar, piano,
and a band. A must buy.
Her latest CD release "Sea of Love" (5 Stars) is incredible. Her Hawai`ian music knowledge is amazing.
Some of these by gone by era traditional hula mele were almost forgotten.
There is some lovely songs on this CD. Accompanied by steel guitar and a tiki style band.
Her rendition of "Moonlight and Shadows" is absolutely beautiful. Another definite must buy.
