In a culture that honors the legacies of the past, this Hawaiian trio of talented musicians pays homage to their roots while creating a unique and progressive sound that leaves their mark in contemporary Hawaiian music.
This worldview is the essence of Hiikua’s music, which is either composed or performed by Kalehua Krug, Kamuela Kimokeo and Blake Leoki-Haili. The group’s name derives from the Hawaiian word that literally means “to carry on one’s back.” Hi`ikua accepts this responsibility and intends with each song to achieve that goal: to speak of their history in words and music; to enjoy each moment of that expression, and in sharing this with you, to hope that their message will find its way into the future.
The music on Aia I Hi`ialo reflects the fond memories of Hi`ikua’s parents and grandparents, the things that they taught, and the messages that they shared. These memories are often the source of inspiration for mele that are written to help remember important life lessons. Learn More
Dance is universal. Regardless of what language or culture you call your own, if you witness hula, you always identify it with Hawai‘i. This small speck of land, in the biggest ocean on Earth, connects Hawai‘i with the world and often that connection is through hula. We are not confined to dance hula with just our feet. What brings hula to life is that the hands as well as the music, tell the story of the people of Hawai‘i. The music resonates from our hearts and souls and comes to life with hula.Learn More
On the heels of Mailani’s self-titled debut solo album, which garnered her the prestigious “Female Vocalist of the Year” Award, comes her brand new CD entitled `Aina. (English translation: Earth, land) With her feet well planted in the “‘aina,” this brave artist continues to challenge herself with each project. Mailani is originally from the very successful, award-winning group, Keahiwai, and the rocking trio, Mighty J. Her first CD proved that she had the ability to succeed as a solo artist. Her sophomore album ‘Aina gives us much more. ‘Aina includes some of the expected contemporary swagger which her fans and radio will love, but there is also something really surprising here that takes Mailani to a whole new level as an artist. Her delivery of some traditional Hawaiian pieces will impress and delight anyone who loves Hawaiian music. Here is a modern Hawaiian woman who knows how to entertain and have fun and here too is a Hawaiian woman with the depth and respect for the generations that came before her. ‘Aina is both gorgeous and entertaining. Another big step forward from an artist that continues to “Wow.”

A ground breaking collaboration between Hawaii's top selling female vocalist Amy Hanaialii and top performers/composers Jeff Peterson, Cyril Pahinui, Dennis Kamakahi, Sonny Lim and Chino Montero in the slack key guitar tradition.
One of the wonderful things about music is its ability to bring people together to share a connection that reaches beyond borders and boundaries. Music can immediately bond souls and create common ground. What happens when kindred spirits who share a deep respect for each other and Hawaiian culture come together to share their music in collaboration? We believe this recording is a great example of just this – creativity, camaraderie, spontaneity, passion, joy, laughter, gratitude, and above all aloha. We hope this recording is as much a joy to listen to, as it was to create.Learn More
