Aloha! We are Pōpoki House, a trans-lesbian hybrid acoustic music duo consisting of Taeri, a happa Hawaiian & Korean trans woman and Katie, her trans intersex haole Ipo. (She / her pronouns for us both.) Located in Long Beach, California, USA, we have been performing and recording music now for over five years. We record at home or in studio production environments — as we’re able — and perform in public and online venues. We write together, mangle covers into twisted parodies of their former glory and merge Taeri’s connection with The Islands and her passion for The Grateful Dead with Katie’s background in Country, Rock and Blues into a hybrid music style we call Hawai’icana. During our time as rational adults, we do sound reinforcement and field recording for other artists. It looks like y’all are fixing up a nice venue here. Please let us know what we mi do to help!
