Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole!!!!

Aloha Kakou!
Howzit from Hilo, Big Island!
The weather has been really wonderful... sunny days with turquoise blue ocean and azure sky. Lucky we live in Hilo!
And what better accompaniment would it be to these natural elements of Hawai'i but to listen to the new CD release from Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole! This self-titled CD (his third) is out in the stores now since August 26th and guaranteed, you will enjoy it!



ハワイ島ヒロからアローハ・カコウ!
皆様お元気ですか?こちらはとっても素敵なお天気が続き、毎日青い空と青い海を拝んでいます。もちろんヒロですから雨も降りますけど、この適度な湿度がヒロの居心地のよさに貢献しているんですよね~。
ところでそんないい感じのお天気にぴったりの音楽を今日はご紹介しましょう。地元ヒロが誇るミュージシャン、カウマカイヴァ・カナカオレ。彼の最新CDが8月26日にリリースされました♪

(因みにこの写真は今年の6月に日本で行われたハラウ・オ・ケクヒの「アイハア」の公演時に撮ったカナカオレ三兄弟の写真です!左から次男のウルマウアヒ、中央が三男のカウイラ、そして右がカウマカイヴァです)






I admire his great talent and courage to be able to honor his tradition, and yet be progressive and creative at the same time. And that's what you will hear when you listen to this album.
Here in this photo, he charms the audience with his solo number during his recent visit to Japan with Halau O Kekuhi.

日本にもお馴染みの方は多くいらっしゃると思いますが、ハワイの伝統をしっかり守りながら新しいものを作り上げていく才能と勇気を持ったカウマカイヴァには毎回感心させられます。今回のアルバムは本当にその彼の持ち味が上手く表現されています♪
こちらの写真は上記の公演でソロを披露するカウマカイヴァ。チャーミングなトークと美声で観客を魅了しているところです!





Also to note, is the album's cover art design. His ohana Kuha'o Zane and Kauila Kanaka'ole took charge and presented the artist with this impressive work. I love the photo of Kaumakaiwa on the cover, with the wind from the volcano blowing his bright 'olena (turmeric) yellow fabric away... Dynamic and regal!

あともう一つご注目お願いしたいのが、アルバムのカバー・アートを手掛けたのがクハオ・ゼーンとカウイラ・カナカオレ、というカウマカイヴァの親族二人である、ということです!
カバーの写真が特に良いですよね~♪背景に見えるのは火山国立公園、火山の女神ペレからの風を受け堂々とした風貌でウコン(黄)色に染められた生地を纏い立つカウマカイヴァ。彼の本質を捉えている写真ではないでしょうか?!





Well, I guess my point is clear...
Go get the CD and Enjoy ('cos I did and I am)!!!

Love & Aloha to Kaumakaiwa!
Love & Aloha from Reiko

さ、それではしつこいようですが、CDよろしくです!
是非ご拝聴くださいね~♪

愛とアロハを込めて、カウマカイヴァへ
愛とアロハを込めて、玲子より
