Lorna Lim’s beautiful voice, her deep knowledge of hula, and her connection to the Big Island’s music tradition place her among Hawaii’s living treasures. Born and raised in the North Kohala district on the Big Island, she began playing music at an early age with her siblings and parents, an award-winning family musical group known throughout Hawaii simply as ‘The Lim Family’. Her sister Nani is one of Hawaii’s most renowned Hula teachers, and her Grammy nominated brother, Sonny, is one of Hawaii’s top slack key guitar players. Lorna’s performances have taken her throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.
Lorna recorded “Polinahe” for hula dancers, in a style that reflects her personal musical tradition. The translation of the title - “poli”, meaning from the heart, and “nahe”, meaning sweet and pure - sums up Lorna’s musical style and the beautiful quality of her voice.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."

Raised on homestead land in Waimanalo, Lolena ‘Lena’ Naipo, Jr. goes back to his roots with his band Kahulanui in their first release, Hula Ku‘i. Kahulanui is an inspiration passed down from his grandfather Robert Kahulanui. Lolena remembers stories of his grandfather who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music. It was from these beginnings that he draws from for Hula Ku‘i. “Throughout Hawai‘i in the 20s and 30s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrowed from these influences and performed classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawai‘i today. With musical influences from Uncle Alvin Kaleolani Isaac, Ray Kinney, Sam Koki, Lani McIntryre and even Spike Jones, I am excited for you to hear Kahulanui with the Kahulanui horn section. It’s Hawaiian Swing at its finest and with today’s technology and the magic of GRAMMY® award-winning engineer/producer Charles Michael Brotman, you have one of the most innovative releases to come out of the islands. You won’t be sitting for long once you hear Kahulanui’s Hula Ku‘i... ‘ami aku, ‘ami mai, ‘ami ‘ami malie…“ - Skylark Rossetti
