Lina Robins-Tamure brings a soulful lift to Hawaiian and Island music. A musician from the west side of O‘ahu, she was born and raised in Wai‘anae and hails from a long line of musicians, songwriters and Hula dancers. She grew up singing Hawaiian music at the age of 2, inspired by her dad, who then introduced her to R&B, Soul, Jazz, Pop and Rock and Roll, he is the reason for her passion for music. Lina plays the ‘Ukulele, Guitar and Bass and has been performing professionally for just over 10 years now. One of her proudest moments being on the Oprah Show at age 12 with one of her heroes, Mariah Carey.
For the past 6 years, she has been playing Hawaiian music in a trio formed by her and her cousins, ‘Uhe‘uhene. They are currently working on their first album. You can also find Lina gigging solo around Waikiki.

I want to send the biggest mahalo to my brother @bw808 for having me on #MondayMele and allowing me to share one of my favorite compositions of my great-grandmother. We decided on this mele because it turned out to be a song that Brad loves as well! Mahalo brother! He is one of the most kindest and talented guys in the world! This was so much fun. Hope you all enjoy it. ♥️ #mondaymele #kalawahine #manuhealii #kanileaukulele #kanileaartist
