After receiving a record-breaking nine awards at the 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, Keauhou quickly returned to the studio to record 15 new tracks, consisting of seven originals and eight renewed gems of mele Hawaii.
This album showcases their signature take on traditional Hawaiian music. Inspired by their kumu and the great mele practitioners who have come before them, Keauhou delivers another unique and satiating contribution to the Hawaiian music scene today.
The new album also features the talents of Keali`i Reichel, Jeff Au Hoy, Halehaku Seabury-Akaka, Frank Ka`iuokalani Damas, and Les Ceballos. Their distinct musical contributions further enrich the signature "Keauhou sound" in bright harmonies.
A new current takes us on a journey. Accompanied by the life-giving sun in the west, the wind at our back, the stars above, and our loved ones beckoning us forward, we all progress confidently into the horizon. With these hoailona, a successful deliverance is imminent. Until then, we follow i ke kō a ke au hou.
