Born and raised in Hau‘ula, nearly four decades of performing on Maui, and touring around the world, Tarvin Makia is now stepping out from his long-time roles and band member and leader to solo recording and performing artist. He has just released two original Christmas songs for the 2020 holiday season, “Christmas Day”, which features the amazing voice of Natalie Ai Kamauu, and which is backed by “The ‘Ukulele Christmas Song.' Tbis release follows his 2019 debut album release “Wish You Were Here,” and his 2018 debut single release, “Lei Ana ‘O Haleakalā” (backed with “Ku‘u Ipo O Ke Kai Loa”).
MELE KALIKIMAKA! IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY!
Tarvin Mākia has composed, recorded and released two beautiful songs that celebrate the holidays in his own Hawaiian Style. “Christmas Day” features Tarvin’s signature sound, and includes a guest appearance by multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning Female Vocalist of the Year Natalie Ai Kamauu! Both were recorded and engineered by multiple Grammy and Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning engineer and producer Dave Tucciarone at his famed studio!
