Kaunaloa, the greatly anticipated solo release from Na Palapalai’s Kuana Torres Kahele. This collection of primarily original compositions showcases his talent as a songwriter and impressive vocal ability as a solo recording artist. Kuana’s melodies are as refreshing as they are intoxicating. Kaunaloa, meaning “to persevere,” is Kuana at his best, providing a musical journey that will both enrich and excite the world of hula and Hawaiian music. - from http://www.mountainapplecompany.com/kuana/
On Friday July 29th, with Waikiki Beach as the backdrop, Kuana Torres Kahele will perform Hawaiian music from his new album ‘Kaunaloa’ at Tiki's Grill & Bar for a live audience and statewide broadcast on KFVE TV.
Shannon Scott, host of the show, said he was pleased to book Kuana, “In just over a month after Kuana’s solo début hit local music stores and iTunes, he sold over 20,000 CDs making it to 2nd place of Billboard Charts World Music”.
John Berger of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser wrote: “Kahele’s solo debut album should be a front-runner for local recognition in several major categories at the 2012 Hoku Awards”.
While the sun sets and trade winds gently push coconut trees, Tiki statues stand guard with 30 foot Tiki torches lighting the night. Chef Ronnie Nasuti has created a few special dishes for the evening that will be featured in the restaurant.
