The Beautiful Island of Maui, Hawai'i with anaiisanaiis
French-Senegalese songstress, anaiis, makes music that touches upon identity, healing and grief. Her music is informed by her upbringing, which has taken her across cultures and continents; from Toulouse, Dublin, Dakar and now London. With her mother now settled in Maui, anaiis has had the chance to regularly visit the island and become familiar with its terrain and local community. The island is rich with natural beauty, something anaiis loves and feels endlessly inspired by. The island, which is the second largest in Hawai'i, has everything from hiking spots, to the perfect places to stargaze. With the island also abundant in biodiversity, beaches, and good food it's a popular destination for tourists and travellers.
anaiis gives us a look into the lesser known side of Maui through her tried and tested selections. Each place is special to her and gives an insight into all the island has to offer. Whether you're into long and otherworldly hikes or trying Coconut Fish Cafe's acclaimed fish tacos, anaiis' guide has got you covered. Her debut album, this is no longer a dream, is available to stream on all platforms.
