Here is my video submission for The international ukulele contest 2022. I am grateful to be able to participate in the contest as my passion is spreading Aloha through Hawaiian music.
“Lei Ho’oheno” is one of my favourite Hawaiian songs, words & music by Kainani Kahaunaele.
Thank you for watching.
– About me
Aloha! My name is Seiko, born in Tokyo, Japan. For the past 10 years I’ve been living in Manly, a beachside suburb of Sydney, Australia.
My passion for Hawaiian music started when my partner bought me a ukulele for my birthday in 2013. At that stage, I didn’t know anything about Hawaiian music, however, through the ukulele, my musical journey had begun, leading me on a path of discovery of my passion for Hawaiian music.
Hawaiian music has a therapeutic effect that fills me with its kindness and warmth. I will never forget the inspiration that came to me, when I first heard the voice of Raiatea Helm.
My dream is to spread Aloha and tell the stories of Hawaiian songs to Australian audiences, touching them with heart-felt performances.
