Item Number: ALU-5041
Country or Region: HAWAII
Catalog No: ALU-5041

Though musically best known for its popular slack-key guitar style, the Hawaiian culture contains some far more hidden and ancient traditions. On this rare recording, modern practitioners of the age old Hawaiian chant practice take us back to a time centuries ago, when chants were the basic musical expression of everyday life for the islanders. John Keola Lake established Honolulu’s Academy of Hawaiian Arts, Music & Dance, and was declared a “national treasure” in 1987. Na Wa’a Lalani Kahuna is a group of accomplished individual chanters (including Lake) who first collaborated in 1990 while preparing for the 200-year anniversary observance of the last Hawaiian temple built in Hawaii.
