Lorna Lim’s beautiful voice, her deep knowledge of hula, and her connection to the Big Island’s music tradition place her among Hawaii’s living treasures. Born and raised in the North Kohala district on the Big Island, she began playing music at an early age with her siblings and parents, an award-winning family musical group known throughout Hawaii simply as ‘The Lim Family’. Her sister Nani is one of Hawaii’s most renowned Hula teachers, and her Grammy nominated brother, Sonny, is one of Hawaii’s top slack key guitar players. Lorna’s performances have taken her throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.
Lorna recorded “Polinahe” for hula dancers, in a style that reflects her personal musical tradition. The translation of the title - “poli”, meaning from the heart, and “nahe”, meaning sweet and pure - sums up Lorna’s musical style and the beautiful quality of her voice.
