Haku - Na Mele A Ka Haku [EM Records]
Haku sits in a very strange place in the realm of Hawaiian music. Just one listen through and you’ll be left wondering what just happened. Its magnificently weird blend of multicultural ideas manifested through storytelling, melody, and synthesizers create something like nothing else the Hawaiian Islands has ever produced before.
Solemn, poetic, impactful. In the words of Frank Tavares a.k.a. Haku, the music is “a powerful judgement which helps remind us that the ultimate destiny and purpose of Hawaii rests in our hands.”
