Soft, magical, and sweet, ki ho'alu (slack key) acoustic guitar, was created and evolved by the people of Hawaii in the 1800's. In ki ho'alu music, the hands enter into a beautiful and intricate dance through which the essences of the mystical islands of Hawaii are expressed. Experience old Hawaii and the aloha spirit through Hawaii's own music. Hanalei Sunset is instrumental acoustic ki ho'alu guitar with the rolling waves of Hanalei Bay in the background. Included are traditional and original compositions that touch the heart and make magical moments to remember forever. True to the old style of ki ho'alu, the acoustic guitar strings are 'slackened' to open tunings, a bass rhythm is maintained on the lower strings, and the melody lines are played simultaneously on the higher strings. Audience comments: 'Hearing your music and stories as the sun set was the highlight of our trip' 'Your music made me feel like I was back home on Maui near Hana.' 'Listening to your music while watching the sunset taught me what it means to truly relax and be at peace.'
