Vaihi plays a variety of genres Reggae, Soul, Hip Hop, Blues, Funk, A Cappella, Hawaiian and Fuses these styles in all of our originals. Our main focus on stage is to bring the backyard experience of the local family to the stage. We have taken this concept with us wherever we have traveled. We have made memories in Japan, Tahiti, the mainland US and even performed for the troops in Kuwait.
Tahiti is extra special because we recorded our second Project there with Tahitian producer Teva Tetuanui. There we created the Vaihi's wall of sound also the second CD became the Project that featured our vocal style that was original unlike the normal local fare. Vaihi fuses beatbox and other genres to create memorable covers and originals.
Now you can find us every Friday and Sunday entertaining locals and tourist in world famous Waikiki Beach at Tikis Grille and bar. Tourist and locals alike flock to hear the current members play and sing their hearts out.

Vaihi is the Tahitian name for Hawaii and also means a spring of fresh water. Like our name our mission since our brands creation in 1993, was either to create fresh new music or create fresh takes on standards in the music industry. 25 years later we are still hungrily honing our craft and continually pushing our bounds with the soon release of our tenth project.
