Micah Manaitai is a 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist born in Guam, raised in St. Louis, and currently stationed in LA. Manaitai blends the warmth of 1970s Pacific Island music with the attitude and experimentation of today’s indie rock musicians. Micah owes just as much to Tame Impala as he does to the Makaha Sons of Ni’ihau.

Manaitai’s Modern Sounds in Island and Popular Music is available for “pay what you want” on Bandcamp. We recommend starting with “Låhi Amerikanu.”
