Each piece, each petal makes the collection bloom bigger and brighter. Learn More

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
"Mohalu – to be at ease, comfortable, at liberty. As our lives contain many layers, the same is for Mohalu. Mohalu is also the 12th night of the lunar cycle, an eve where planting flowers would be ideal, as these blooms would grow as full and as perfect as the moon on this night. The mana’o (idea or thought) behind Mohalu represent what this sophomore project is for me.
This song selection unfolds to reveal different petals, if you will, of my life. My own mele (songs) are attempts to communicate my inner most feelings in hopes that there are others who can identify with my struggles and my joys."
No Na Kamali`i is a compilation of Hawaiian verses used to teach children the alphabet and arithmetic, as well as games (hike-and-seek, string figures) and little ditties, some of which are of English origin. These verses are culled from the numerous collection of audio recordings voiced by noted Hawaiian cultural expert Mary Kawena Pukui and call upon the recollections of her youth in Ka`u.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

My Father’s Granddaughter came at a turning point in my life. During the process of recording this album my father passed into his next journey. Lloyd Gilliom, my father, grew up on the road with my Tutu Jennie. She would instill in him three of life’s most important qualities that he later would pass on to me: Humility, Kindness and Love. As I tour the world sharing Hawaiian music, I am thankful that my daughter Madeline was able to spend time with my parents who became instrumental in helping me raise her in today’s world. I would often witness my father teaching Madeline the same life lessons he taught me. Never a dull moment in the Gilliom `Ohana. Beautiful how the circle of life works.

This film is a moving journey into the beauty and meaning of Hawaiian slack key music. Award-winning director Eddie Kamae’s rare combination of master musician and cinematic storyteller is the key to showing how Hawaii’s cultural traditions and the k ho-‘alu guitar intertwine – and opening the door to a greater love of that music.
Candid interviews and archival images combine with the music of many virtuoso performers, from legendary Fred Punahou and Gabby Pahinui to Raymond Kane and today’s Ledward Kaapana, to tell the slack key story from the 1830s to the present. It shows you how this music perpetuates family tradition as songs, techniques and special string tunings are passed from one generation to the next.
All the main islands are visited, including seldom seen Ni‘ihau, as Eddie Kamae explores this most Hawaiian music and its links with the people and places that have nourished it.
The duo features the acclaimed vocals of Nathan Aweau and the slack key guitar stylings of Jeff Peterson with acoustic and electric bass, ukulele, and percussion.
Nathan Aweau and Jeff Peterson reflect on their Hawaiian heritage in their first collaborative recording. The album features 4 original compositions by Jeff Peterson, and arrangements of classic Hawaiian standards shaped by the collective influences of broad musical backgrounds of both artists.Learn More
