Called Rapa Nui in the Polynesian language, Easter Island sits in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, more than 2,000 miles off the coast of Chile.
It’s home to about 7,000 residents and some of the world’s most stunning scenery, including about 1,000 giant statues known as moai. It’s also home to 38 year-old Mahani Teave.
Teave recorded this version of Chopin’s Scherzo No. 1 in B Minor for her debut album, “Rapa Nui Odyssey.” And in March, the album climbed to the top of Billboard’s classical charts, a remarkable development for a woman who grew up on one of the most remote spots on the globe.
