oly Paa was born in the Philippines but grew up in Vallejo, California. His musical talent was discovered early on when at two and a half years old his mother was informed by their baby sitter that he was performing complete musical pieces on the piano by ear. Catalina Paa encouraged her young prodigy to continue playing by purchasing his first piano for only $50.00.
ater, Noly learned to read music and was granted a scholarship to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he received a B.M. degree in musical performance. A short two week trip to Oahu began a life long love affair with Hawaii. Noly immediately packed all his belongings and has been living and performing in Hawaii since. He has released a recording of original songs titled Reflections which garnered several Na Hoku Hanohano nominations.
hope you can experience the beauty and wonder of these islands. The peace, serenity and family I have found living in Hawaii."
