Shivani began her career at age five and has been a singer and musician her entire life. In school she played several instruments and won a college music scholarship.
She was Denverís Darling for many years, as the jazz singer in the hottest jazz club, the Senate Lounge. She fronted several bands and traveled extensively throughout the United States. Later she moved to Los Angeles and became a staff writer for Motown Records. One of her songs "Step By Step" took the winning award at the American Song Festival.
Hawaii has been her home for the past 16 years where she performs regularly with her band Clear Sky, as a soloist, and with other bands. She has entertained in the major hotels and clubs, traveled as far as Japan and other parts of Asia, and performed on cruise ships in the Pacific and Caribbean. She is also a composer, recording artist, and private music instructor.
As a soloist or with a band - singing and playing any of the many styles of music she excels at - Shivani will create the right mood for your special event.
Shivani Kumar has been performing in the Lobby Lounge of the Kahala Mandarin Oriental, Hawaii since March 1996. During this period she has delighted and satisfied our very discerning guests with her wonderful musical talent and her warm aloha spirit.
Shivani is a true professional and has been a asset to the musical program here at the Kahala.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me.

Shivani Kumar has performed at hundreds of weddings at the Hilton Turtle Bay Resort over the past eight years. In addition to being an excellent keyboard instrumentalist she is a talented vocalist as well. Over the past eight years we have received numerous compliments on her performances and had zero complaints. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with her over the years and have found her to be consistently dependable, professional and on time. Shivani also has a pleasant demeanor in interacting with clients and guests which is another welcome attribute.
I highly recommend Shivani Kumar for any special occasion requiring the musical talents of a keyboard instrumentalist and/or vocalist.
