Sharing aloha through inspirational Hawaiian melodies


 “Nā Mele ʻUkulele” is a celebration of Polynesian culture expressed in 14 newly recorded Hawaiian contemporary and traditional ‘ukulele instrumentals. Also known as “the people’s instrument,” the ukulele’s influence on island music has remained a driving force as each generation passes along aloha for its unique sound, creating a musical legacy that many call “the sound of Hawaii.”

 This collection of Nā Hoku Hanohano and Hawaiʻi Music Award winners and nominees, Herb Ohta Jr., Bryan Tolentino, Kawika Kahiapo, Benny Chong, Kalei Gamiao, Gordon Freitas, Hale Seabury, Charley Regua and Honoka & Azita are among the fourteen of Hawai’i’s ukulele masters performing much-loved “mele.”

 Included in this album of relaxing melodies are early nineteenth century classics “O Kalena Kai,” the Hawaiian wedding song, “Ke Kali Nei Au,”  “Lei No Ka’iulani,”  “Ka Leo O Ka Manu,” “Silver Threads Among the Gold,” “Hilo One,” and “Waiulu.” Contemporary gems include, “Oceans Away,” “Blue Hawai’i,’ “Waialua Sky,” a medley of the very popular, “Hawaiian Lullaby,” and “Honolulu I’m Coming Back Again,” “Waialua Sky,” “Legend of the Rain,” and “Do the Hula.”   Combining the best of tradition and technology, “Nā Mele ʻUkulele” is a captivating tribute to Hawaiiana of yesterday and today.
