Mailani, best known for her collaborative efforts as a member of the Na Hoku Hanohano award winning duo Keahiwai and more recently the trio Mighty J, steps into the spotlight as a solo artist displaying the depth of her talents. This album presents innovative yet respectful interpretations of Hawaiian standards, as well as several original compositions in both Hawaiian and English. Mailani blends the contemporary and the traditional in ways that will delight aficionados of both genres.

 

Throughout the history of recorded music in Hawai‘i, generations of listeners have been enthralled by a seemingly endless procession of female vocalists whose joyful voices rival the sweetest sounding native birds of the forest. Some are so unique that they can be identified by first name alone - Lena, Genoa, Emma, Nina, Melveen, Loyal. Today, this rich tradition is carried on by - Teresa, Darlene, Amy, Raiatea. Only time will tell if Mailani will earn a place among her predecessors in the pantheon of Hawaiian music, but this solo debut is certainly an auspicious beginning.
