Manaka was born in San Diego, CA, on May 2, 1982. She spent most of her childhood in Seattle, WA, until about the age of 15, when she left home and started her path as a healer and musician. This is when she first picked up a guitar and started singing. When Manaka was 17, she moved to Kauai where she lived for over 5 years evolving on her musical path. Manaka started performing for the first time with a local Kauai Reggae band, Burning Bush, who she still performs with when on Kauai. With the help of real life experience, divine guidance, and support from friends, she has naturally taught herself how to sing and play guitar.
