Madame Riviere

Little is well known of Madame Riviere, a France woman sent with the France government to review Tahiti — a France colony — in the 1920s. Developing a music group, Madame Riviere’s Hawaiians, offering Hawaii-born metal guitarist Tau Moe and his wife and vocalist, Rose, Riviere created a number of the first recordings of traditional Hawaiian music. Following departure from the Moes in the first ’30s, Riviere faded into background. A tune by Madame Riviere’s Hawaiians, “Fort Road,” is roofed over the multi-artist compilation Hawaiian Metal Electric guitar Classics: 1927-1938.
