Hawaiian-born electronic musician Kawehi will give one of the more unusual performances at this year's Riverbend Festival. 

Using a microphone, loopers and digital effects, she alters her voice to sound like a guitar, a bass, and drums.  Her cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" went viral last year, winning praise from Courtney Love, who called Kawehi's work "genius."  Now her YouTube channel has around seven millions hits.

Her live shows are a mix of cover songs and originals.  Check out her Nirvana cover below, and catch her at 9:15 p.m. on the TVFCU stage during Riverbend on Thursday evening.
