Emerging singer-songwriter KeAloha is back with her new single “Mama’s Hands”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Mama’s Hands celebrates my Mom, Nani, who raised me and my 2 older siblings with somethings-from-nothings,” said KeAloha. “This song celebrates our triumphs as a low income, brown, femme gang hailing from the North-West of Turtle Island.”
Through her gifts as a singer, songwriter, drummer, and dancer, KeAloha invites us into the moments of liberation that we find when we hold ourselves, each other, and our complex intersections with tenderness, solidarity, and pride.
KeAloha is a mixed race femme with chronic illness disability, whose blood carries legacies of Polynesian navigators and dancers, Lheidli trappers and medicine people, Irish farmer-settlers, and Chinese immigrants.
KeAloha identifies her music as IndigiPop, embracing her love for getting people moving to a clever hook, with the mission of decolonizing pop culture at heart. Her music is a vessel for her to build relationships and understanding with the many identities she holds.
