The Navigators: Pathfinders of the Pacific
$14.99

Restored & Remastered Edition.

Over 1,000 years ago, the scattered islands of Polynesia were settled by an ancient seafaring people. Where did they come from? How did they navigate across the vast Pacific Ocean to settle one-third of Earth's surface?

To find out, anthropologist Sam Low visited the tiny coral atoll of Satawal, in Micronesia's remote Caroline Islands, to film Mau Piailug as he guides his canoe by using subtle signs in the waves, winds and stars. In his lofty canoe house he teaches the intricacies of this ancient sea science in a ceremony called "unfolding the mat" by arranging 32 lumps of coral to represent the points of his "star compass."

Thor Heyerdahl thought Polynesia was settled from South America by voyagers who drifted aboard primitive rafts like Kon Tiki, pushed along by prevailing winds and currents. But he was wrong. The Navigators follows archeologists working on the Tahitian island of Huahine, in Fiji and Hawaii as they prove that Polynesia's settlers forced their way against the winds and currents from Island Southeast Asia aboard large seaworthy double-hulled canoes. In a dramatic demonstration, Mau Piailug guides a replica of such a vessel, Hokule`a, from Hawaii to Tahiti - 2500 miles across the ocean without benefit of sextant, compass, or any other Western navigational instrument.

`A
$12.98

Natalie Ai Kamauu's third CD is filled with her signature soaring vocals and heartfelt delivery of classic Hawaiian mele, along with two new beautiful compositions. A bonus track of "Sanoe" accompanied by a full orchestra will WOW you.

From the artist:

`Ā — to sparkle like a gem……

”`Ā” means to sparkle, like a gem. Iʻm not gonna lie…I love the bling. It makes me sing! Thatʻs not why I named this project “`Ā”. For my first recording endeavor, I wanted a name that would catch a few eyes and turn a few heads, hoping to lure a few ears. “`Ē” encompassed all of my feelings and emotions and so it was destiny. It truly was strange, weird and wonderful to say the least.

You Should Know By Now
$12.98

Following the selection as Group of the Year at the 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, the KUmZ duo continues to strive forward in perpetuating the Hawaiian culture through music and dance with their fourth release.

The phrase "You Should Know By Now" comes from the song "Do I Love You?" but it first became familiar to them as their Kumu Robert Cazimero would always say it and write it in notes and cards. The phrase has since stuck with KUmZ as a beautiful way to say I love you to someone and to express that sentiment of love.

The CD is filled with new compositions that tell stories of their haumana, places they have visited, and experiences they have shared together. The CD also features mele that were written by the haumana of Halau I Ka Wekiu.

While still performing as a vital part of Na Leo, Lehua Kalima spreads her wings releasing this much-demanded solo CD debut.

Lehua’s talent extends beyond the sultry tone it lends to the group’s sound and her lyrics have been award winning and memorable. Prevailing with three Na- Ho- ku- Hanohano Awards for Best Song of the Year in 1996 for “Flying With Angels,” in 1999 for “Rest of Your Life” and in 2001 for “Saving Forever,” Lehua thrives in an unmatched category as a lyricist.

While at Kamehameha Schools, Lehua Kalima joined with two good friends, Nalani Choy and Angela Morales to form Na Leo Pilimehana. In their senior year, they won a huge radio competition in Honolulu, Brown Bags to Stardom, playing in front of thousands at the Waikiki Shell. Nineteen albums and 20 Na Hoku Hanohano awards later, they continue to record and perform throughout the world.
