Twice-Grammy® nominated international Hawaiian recording star, Raiatea Helm adds to her list of award-winning music with the release of her long-awaited solo CD Sea of Love. As a courageous “new traditionalist” of Hawaiian music, Raiatea Helm’s collection of songs in Sea of Love takes the musical stylings of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s and makes them fresh through vibrant, innovative arrangements. This collection of songs draws upon the signature sounds of a bygone era in Waikiki and captures the sizzle of brushes on a snare drum and ‘sock’ cymbal, the use of maracas, congas and bongos, and the uplifting rhythms of the vibraphones, the bass, the steel guitar, and the piano. When Raiatea Helm’s sparkling vocals are placed within the energy of this effervescent instrumentation, she breathes new life to songs from a by-gone era that were once performed throughout Waikiki and known simply as “Hawaiian Club” music.Learn More

"All visitors ashore!""¦ was the familiar call from the ports of Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and our beloved Hawai`i in the 1950s. All who stepped foot on shore fell in love with the mystique and the romance of these magical islands including two distinguished American composers, Alfred Newman and Ken Darby. Combined, these two brilliant men have composed for such award-winning films as The King and I, Wuthering Heights and How the West Was Won. After experiencing the islands, and working with similar arrangements on films South Pacific and Bird of Paradise, they found it impossible to put down their conductor batons and ignore the wondrous and alluring sights and sounds of Hawai`i. In 1960, they produced for Capitol Records, this album, Ports of Paradise, calling it "a culmination and most definitive expression of the enchantment which (they) have found in the moods, the repose, the mystery of those far-off places."Learn More

The CD is titled 'Io, short for 'Iolani, the name of the Hawaiian hawk. I use the hawk as a metaphor for my Grandmother who passed away recently. My Grandfather passed away when my Father was but 10 years old. Thus, my Grandmother had to raise 9 children by herself. She must've done a great job, for in 1964 she was honored as "Mother of the Year". Like the hawk, I have an imagery of my Grandmother flying up high, looking down and protecting those she love. This CD is dedicated to my mentor, my teacher, my Grandma."Learn More
