Click to enlargeHo'okena - Lei Pulamahia

“Lei Pulamahia” represents treasured songs that Ho‘okena has recorded over the years. Whether for places, people, events or emotions, these musical “lei” are worn with pride and shared with much aloha. As they approach their 20th Anniversary in 2006, this release in October 2005 marks a decade-and-a-half since their debut recording, “Thirst Quencher.” Ho‘okena, a district in South Kona, means “to satisfy thirst.”

This re-mix of Ho‘okena standards and originals breathes new life into mele considered favorites by group members. Featured are originals by Manu Boyd, Horace Dudoit, Anuenue Punua, Kihei de Silva, as well as classics by Keliana Bishaw, Henry Waia‘u and Lot Kauwe. Guest artists include Maila Gibson on “The Prayer” and Robert Uluwehi Cazimero on “Aloha Honaunau.”
