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
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
Twice-Grammy® nominated international Hawaiian recording star, Raiatea Helm adds to her list of award-winning music with the release of her long-awaited solo CD Sea of Love. As a courageous “new traditionalist” of Hawaiian music, Raiatea Helm’s collection of songs in Sea of Love takes the musical stylings of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s and makes them fresh through vibrant, innovative arrangements. This collection of songs draws upon the signature sounds of a bygone era in Waikiki and captures the sizzle of brushes on a snare drum and ‘sock’ cymbal, the use of maracas, congas and bongos, and the uplifting rhythms of the vibraphones, the bass, the steel guitar, and the piano. When Raiatea Helm’s sparkling vocals are placed within the energy of this effervescent instrumentation, she breathes new life to songs from a by-gone era that were once performed throughout Waikiki and known simply as “Hawaiian Club” music.Learn More

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.

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.
