About
Anela has been a professional harpist for over 20 years, and a classically trained pianist since the age of four. She spent 14 years on the Garden Island of Kaua'i playing for weddings, blessings, dinner parties and festivals. She also enjoys playing healing music for yoga classes, massage and meditation and has played with numerous slack key guitar artists as well as R&B star Michael Franti in 2006. In 2016 she teamed up with David Gans and Stephen Inglis to form "Fragile Thunder", and they have toured the western U.S. for the last 3 years Anela has been living in beautiful Lyons, CO for 6 years now and has formed a local Hawaiian-inspired band with Rita Trujillo called the Aloha Sisters.

Anela has released 3 CDs - "Mele from the Harp" (2008), an instrumental interpretation of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian songs, "Harpin' on the Dead" (2012), a tribute to the good ol' Grateful Dead, and "One Afternoon Long Ago", with Fragile Thunder. These days you will find Anela playing locally in Colorado with The Aloha Sisters as well as with Grateful Dead tribute bands across the U.S., and you will hear her music on David Gans' Sirius XM station.

Anela would love to work with you to adapt your special songs to the harp, whether classical, jazz, contemporary, Celtic, world/Hawaiian, traditional, or rock and roll. Her graceful style will upift and inspire your guests, and bring warmth and elegance to your special occasion.

Anela played at our wedding in Evergreen and she did an amazing job even though the temps were a bit cooler than we were hoping for. She took special requests from us for ceremony music and she played beautifully, my wife and I highly recommend her.
