Cool Breeze by Hawaii's acoustic guitar trio Kohala reflects many of the musical influences found in the islands: Hawaiian, Latin, Japanese, Pacific Rim, and Jazz. Throughout Kohala's evolution, their essence and beautiful acoustic guitar music remains intact.
Sonny Lim has been celebrated all year long for his slack key guitar performance on Hawai`i's first Best Hawaii Music Album GRAMMY® Award winning CD. We are proud to present Sonny's first solo project, Slack Key Guitar: The Artistry of Sonny Lim, which has the same award-winning promise.
Haleakala- is the fourth collaboration between kiho`alu (slack key) guitarist and GRAMMY® winner Jeff Peterson and internationally famous shakuhachi Grand Master Riley Lee. Like their best selling CD, Maui Morning, the Valley Isle of Maui inspired this recording. The shakuhachi (bamboo flute) is ideally suited to Hawaiian music, with its ability to play the soft melodies and rich harmonies, and the slides, bends, and other ornaments, with an expressive quality rivaled only by the human voice. Featuring refreshing interpretations of many of the most celebrated songs from Hawai`i, Haleakala-also includes four original pieces inspired by the beauty and majesty of the Haleakala- Mountain and the Haleakala- Crater. Haleakala-'s soothing nahenahe (sweet) music calms the spirit and invigorates the soul. Learn More
