Singer Starr Kalahiki is one of the most versatile and accomplished singers in Hawaiʻi today. Her Hoku award-winning album "Salt" is a collection of jazz standards, but her repertoire ranges from bluesy ballads to swingin' Hawaiian and off-beat Broadway.

Speaking to HPR's Noe Tanigawa, she describes the feeling of singing out, learning about the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom, connecting with Queen Liliʻuokalani, and much more.

This interview aired on The Aloha Friday Conversation on Jan. 14, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
