Album Notes

From the artist:
Mohalu to be at ease, comfortable, at liberty. As our lives contain many layers, the same is so for Mohalu. Mohalu is also the 12th night of the lunar cycle, an eve where planting flowers would be ideal, as these blooms would grow as full and as perfect as the moon on this night. The mana双 behind Mohalu represent what this sophomore project is for me.

With Pihana I saw a completion of one of my life痴 goals. I saw my musical dreams come to fruition and therefore felt 田omplete. Alas, with Mohalu I am beginning to understand that life is full of dreams and goals just waiting to 砥nfold. Mohalu also speaks to where I am at this phase in my life. The unfolding of those perfect blooms, for me, represent the unfolding of all the different roles I am to play in this life. The roles of mom, daughter, sister, wife, Kumu Hula, school teacher, entertainer and friend are roles I embrace and am so grateful for. Ah yes, in the hustle and bustle of life, I am still content, at ease and comfortable.

The song selection unfolds to reveal different petals, if you will, of my life. The original compositions so generously shared with me by Puakea Nogelmeier and Manaiakalani Kalua speak to my na疎u. My own mele are attempts to communicate my inner most feelings in hopes that there are others who can identify with my struggles and my joys. And of course, there are mele here that are my hula favorites, but why? Well, there are still some secrets that must stay secret!
