Susiana started Islanders Luau in 1970 (see our "About Us" page). We pull this gorgeous great-grandmother out of retirement a couple of times a year to entertain "by special request!" Like many children in Samoa, she learned to play the ukulele as a child with a handmade uke, made out of a coconut. She mastered it to the point that she can really crank on it--while she sings all the Hawaiian oldies. About 10 years ago, she was playing it "by special request", and she even played it behind her head--really well! Many Samoans are blessed with incredible musical talent, and she has brought her magic to many people throughout Southern California for over 50 years!
