Ka Lei Moana is 6-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winning duo, Kūpaoa's, 8th release. In addition to the 12 tracks on the album, the CD also includes a special bonus track of their hit single, “Take Aloha With You.” The collection includes 7 original compositions in addition to the time-honored favorites that showcase the remarkable blend and soothing harmonies that the duo has become known for.
Ka Lei Moana – The Garland of the Sea, is a multi-faceted expression of how many different blossoms of our shared world can be brought together into a lei to enjoy and to share. Ka Lei Moana offers up an adorning garland of song that embraces us, as enveloping as the sea around us. Paci c islands know the ocean as a linking agent rather than a barrier, and this lei of music is meant to bring together some far- ung owers to celebrate the connections and to decorate the hearts of all.
The title song was inspired by the idea of “many rivers, one ocean,” re ecting on the ow and unity of human spirit. It is aloha that unites us, like owers in a lei, and each of the mele in this collection expresses some aspect of aloha. Aloha kanaka, aloha ʻāina, aloha moʻolelo – love for people, place, or story, is embodied in each of the songs. Gathered together, these streams of expression, each a many-petalled ower, are brought into a single garland of aloha, meant to surround us like the sea. We invite you to enjoy each blossom, and to delight in the embracing lei.
