Coming into his own, taking Hawaiian music to the next dimension is Kaumaka'iwa Kanaka'ole. The three-time NāHōkū Hanohano Award-winner has developed into a phenomenal world music artist with an inventive talent that shines brightly. As strong a Hawaiian as his bloodline, Kanaka'ole delivers oli (chants) and mele (song) with refined dynamics that is exclusively his own.
Bo Lozoff has been intermittently writing and performing his songs for almost forty years. Enjoy a powerful live performanceof songs written during his life on the road, speakingand performing across the country.
