New Single Release

"Hele On Kinda Day"
A new composition from his collection of original
yet-to-be-recorded "Pili ‘Āina" songs
celebrating and honoring the land & wind & waters.

Keoki Apokolani Carter (guitar & baritone ukulele, vocals)
Yvonne Yarber Carter (vocals)
Sonny Lim (bass)

Hope you enjoy listening to Hele on Kinda Day!

 "Mahalo to the waterway through Waimea that inspired and in many ways wrote this song
after a morning walk with my pu‘uwai. After coming home I just slacked the strings and mahalo
to Mauʻs guitar that helped the sounds come to life. To Yvonne who wrote the lyrics that same morning.
And Sonny Lim for your aloha, recording studio, and rounding it all out with the bass.
Most of all, mahalo ‘āina, mahalo akua.
