Award-winning pianist Mahani Teave is a pioneering artist and the only professional classical musician on her native Easter Island. Her debut album, Rapa Nui Odyssey, was number one on the Billboard charts and BBC Music Magazine noted her “natural pianism” and “magnificent artistry.” 

Believing in the profound, healing power of music, she has performed globally from the stages of the world’s foremost concert halls on six continents to hospitals, schools, jails, and low-income areas. Twice distinguished as one of the 100 Women Leaders of Chile, she has performed for its five past presidents and in its embassy, along with those in Germany, Indonesia, Mexico, China, Japan, Ecuador, Korea, and Mexico, and symbolic places including Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, Chile’s Palacio de la Moneda, and Chilean Congress. Mahani is the winner of numerous international piano competitions and awards, including the APES Prize for best classical music performance in Chile, the Claudio Arrau International Piano Competition, the Merit Prize (arts) from Andrés Bello University, and the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Concerto Competition.
