Polynesian music has never had a better ambassador than Waikiki, a singer, and songwriter from Maui, Hawaii whose catchy tunes and singles are creating waves on the European and Brazil music scene. Living in Norway, Waikiki is now a regular feature symbolizing the sound of Hula on social media, and music platforms worldwide.
Waikiki, a Hawaiian artist has grabbed world attention for her popular brand of pulsating tropical dance beats, catchy choruses, and intriguing melodies.
