This project has been a revelation of dreams come true, thanks to those who are living and those who have passed. The collective `ike of all who have shared their na‘au with me, brings me to this path I now walk.
Starting with unrecorded material I had previously written, I began writing new songs, as this album took on a life of its own. In the end, the title unveiled itself. "The White Bathtub" holds many levels of kaona, hidden meanings, that only reveal what the listener asks for.
In this journey called life, we have the responsibility to honor the past, live in the now and leave our heart-prints for future generations. My joys, my fears, my hopes, and my beliefs are contained in "The White Bathtub" that still sits in the middle of my gramma's yard. I hope you jump in too!

TAIMANE: Her name means “diamond” in Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature. Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up.
Among Taimane’s ‘ukulele teachers turned admirers are Roy Sakuma and Jake Shimabukuro. When Don Ho caught wind of the talented teen, he invited her to join him as part of his venerable variety show at the Waikiki Beachcomber, further fueling Taimane’s desire to perform for and connect with audiences.
In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes. Her breakout CD, ‘Ukulele Dance features Bach’s “Tocatta,” Lalo Schifrin’s “Mission Impossible Theme,” and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system.
With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is. Learn More

In his formative years Lucien studied Classical Guitar and Folk, to later cross over to Pop, Rock, Reggae. However, the west African Music Cavasha, which is the precedent to Soukous and Makossa is the undertone of Lucien’s music.

As an artist, I want to reach as many people around the world as possible. I want to have a positive impact with my music, provide for myself, my loved ones, and all those who are involved. I seek to educate, inform and stimulate while entertaining. Making music is as vital to me as breathing.
The Music and Us
For the longest time, artists, by enlarge have talked about a big “ They “,
separating ourselves from the responsibility of it all.
We believe that the talent of music that we have gives us a great tool for
Freedom of speech makes it possible for people in the arts, especially music,
To freely talk about any and everything. Lots has been sung about: love, sex, anger
It is our belief that in our days, music is a great tool for unifying, raising awareness,
sharing our common Hopes, fears, aspirations, and for giving comfort. We believe in a
humanitarian purpose to the music we make.
It is a window to the soul, yours and ours. We feel blessed that the world is listening
To the voice of wisdom that comes through us. We therefore aim at making music that serves
How This Album Came About
In November 2005 I landed on Maui, Hawaii, full of hope.
Little did I know what I was in for. I suffered a fall that would partially paralyze
me. With this unfortunate accident came my greatest blessing, for it lead me to
Chetanaa and Tana.
The mother and her nine year old son took me into their home, and embarked
on a difficult journey with me. It was the compassion and love they had for me,
that created the magic: In order to help my spirit stay strong, Chetanaa offered to facilitate the production of this album, thus giving me a purpose. As I kept getting worse, she set everything aside,
and I became her full time occupation. ( By the way, did I mention that I was completely broke and uninsured ?)
The Neurosurgeon’s prognosis was very debilitating for someone hoping for a singing career. My voice,
I was told would never be the same. It felt like a death sentence. Hence, I postponed the surgery , prioritizing the album, in the event that I would never sing again after surgery. However I could no longer postpone it when my condition became unbearable. This album is proof that I came out of surgery victorious.
It is the greatest gift of love that I have received since my birth. I am sharing this gift of a second chance with the world .

"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.
