Kulaiwi

Kulāiwi - 3 award winning Native Hawaiians Kawika Kahiapo, Lehua Kalima Alvarez and Shawn Kekoa Pimental - is proud to debut their new self-titled album, Kulāiwi-Native Lands! This album features 15 mele, a mix of originals and classic mele Hawai‘i, written by some of Hawai‘i's favorite artists and haku mele. Kulāiwi-Native Lands is available on all digital platforms. Physical copies may be purchased at live engagements. Email kulaiwimusic@gmail.com for lyrics, tour info, booking and other questions.

 

Kulāiwi was formed to reconnect kānaka to ‘āina through mele, the thread that connects the continuum of cultural knowledge. Kulāiwi's mission is to serve as a link in the chain of aloha ‘āina transmission, and believes that it is their kuleana to share music that encourages the listener to take an active role in aloha ‘āina. If these mele cause one person to ask a question, re-think their connectivity to land and culture, or want to learn more about ‘ike kupuna, then the work has served its purpose. Through music, may ‘āina and lāhui heal and thrive.

Individually, these three artists have a number of Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards between them. Lehua Kalima is one-third of Hawai‘i's beloved Nā Leo Pilimehana. Shawn Pimental is a Grammy nominated producer, and he and Kawika Kahiapo have performed with countless island and national favorites. Together the synergy they create is both heard and felt by their audiences. 

Kulāiwi means “land of my ancestors.” With soaring vocals, island harmonies and a folk vibe, along with an easy-going charisma and witty banter, they are committed to telling the stories of Hawai’i – the land and the people – from their Indigenous points-of-view. Their prodigious talents as lyricists and composers create music imbued with Hawaiian values and ways of seeing and living in the world. Both their original songs and their selections of Hawaiian classics are inspired by diverse musical styles and reflect their passionate commitment to their islands.
