“Apokolani” is Keoki Apokolani Carter, who lives and works on Hawai‘i island. He is closest to Kohala Mountain but is equally influenced by the other beautiful mountains—all in his daily view plane. Ancestral ties to the island, go back more generations than he can count. Apokolani was given this Hawaiian name at birth by his long departed, tutu Maraea (Maria) Paahao Asing Carter. She said it meant, ‘reaching for heaven’. While most know him as Keoki or “Uncle Keoki” in the forest where he works, Apokolani is the name that fits best for this musical journey where, “sometimes the songs seem to drop out of the sky”.
