HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After an eight year break from the recording studio, multiple Na Hoku Hanohano Award winners Maunalua return with their highly-anticipated fourth album - He Inoa ("We Are" Maunalua, which introduces their newest member, ukulele and guitar player Richard Gideon).
Continuing their tradition of blending their unique harmonies, kihoalu guitar, and ukulele, the album is a collection of traditional Hawaiian songs such as "Hilo One" in a medley with William S. Ellis's "Hula O Makee"; hula standards such as "Pua Ahihi" and several other songs.
Long time fans of their live shows will love the inclusion of fan favorite "He is the Only Reason," with a twist suggested by producer Dave Tucciarone that adds a whole new dimension to the song.
Maunalua will also be performing as part of the Independence Day Celebrations at The Turtle Bay Resort on July 3rd.
