Keauhou

Like the currents that have carried our people across the sea, Keauhou is not the destination, nor is it the origin. Keauhou is the journey itself, a connection to the past that lies before us.

The debut album of Jonah Solatorio and brothers, Nicholas and Zachary Lum, promises a unique blend of new and renewed, both familiar and refreshing. From classics that honor prolific haku mele like Helen Desha Beamer and Charles E. King, to original compositions that honor the contemporary Hawaiian experience, Keauhou places ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi in paramount esteem. With special guests, Robert Cazimero, Ainsley Halemanu, Jeff Au Hoy, and Halehaku Seabury-Akaka, this collection of mele makes this debut album a necessity for any Hawaiian music collection.

As the lilt of sweet refrains beckons you into the musical horizons of times past, let Keauhou carry you forward to a place where old and new - the past and future - are one in the same.

E koʻolau ke kō a Keauhou.
