Review from billaher

It was a low-key performance. Raiatea has a wonderful voice, but needs to "season".

Description

Keola Beamer is one of Hawai’i’s premier singer/songwriters, arrangers, composers and Master of the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. His well of talent springs from five generations of Hawaii’s most illustrious and beloved musical families. The Beamers trace their roots to the 15th century; among their ancestors are Queen Ahiakumai Ki’eki’e and Ho’olulu, a child of the favored wife of Kamehameha I.

Raiatea Helm’s virtuoso recordings and performances have already launched her onto the international music scene with extensive concert appearances throughout Japan and Asia. Domestically, she has appeared at venues stretching from New York City to San Francisco. She has collaborated with legends of Hawaiian music: The Brothers Cazimero, The Makaha Sons, Keali’i Reichel, Ho’okena, Auntie Genoa Keawe, and Ledward Ka’apana. As with Raiatea Helm’s career, the list continues to grow with no end in sight.

Beamer and Helm first met in 2008 when one of the coordinators for the annual Lantern Floating Festival asked them to share a stage. The two “clicked,” according to Helm, and they decided to start working together. Eventually, months of touring in Japan, China and the continental U.S. led to them deciding to record a full-length album. They have collaborated on a ground-breaking new CD, “Keola Beamer and Raiatea.” This unique recording transcends the Hawaiian music genre and enters the world music stage by incorporating ancient Hawaiian musical instruments into inventive arrangements.
