Over the years MānoaDNA has looked to its kūpuna for wisdom, turned to contemporaries for advice and challenged each other from within. To this mix they now add the magical ingredient of experience. Their music is fueled with new inspirations. Their presentation, once a breath of fresh air sprinkled with beautiful harmonies, takes on a polished patina.
With EVOLUTION, MānoaDNA offers an eclectic collection of songs. “Quicksand” is written by Alex and sung by Nick. The cover “Love the One You’re With” is performed by Lloyd. And, with a nod to the great Michael Jackson, they offer “The Way You Make Me Feel”, with a unique MānoaDNA style.
Still taking advantage of their familial vocal connection, MānoaDNA accepts the challenge to grow and evolve into more serious sound. The jacket cover, created by Nick, communicates the myriad of experiences contributing to MānoaDNA’s growth. Each glyph or carving depicts a stepping-stone in the EVOLUTION of MānoaDNA… the result of MānoaDNA’s desire to create a more complex and better form.
