ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ingenious fusion of soulful r&b style vocals with the prominent basslines of jamaican reggae. Mana Poly All-Stars present RIDDIM + BLUES as their sophomore release. This is definitely a must have!

Mana Poly All-Stars (MPA) is no stranger to the music industry. With well over 20 years of combined experience, they have had success in both the retail and radio charts, in addition, to posting numerous “Number 1 Hits” on Polynesian radio stations along the west coast, the Polynesian triangle, Guam, Saipan, and the Micro and Melanesian islands. MPA’s fortune is accredited to a sound which they have pioneered together–urban island music.

The Unity Concert, hosted by SolKrush Entertainment on July 5, 2008, was the backdrop for the release of MPA’s sophomore album, “riddim + blues.” The perfect blend of Jamaican riddims and sultry R&B vocals is what sets this album apart from any other.

Mana Poly All-Stars is rapidly gaining mainstream recognition. Performing at the after party for the Tanner Hall film premiere in September 2008, being selected for the Puma Fragrances “Puma Flowing” campaign in October 2008, licensing by Warren Miller Entertainment for Ford Motor Company and sharing the stage with national reggae artist Morgan Heritage in 2007 are a few examples of this. Other indications of their growing popularity are being nominated for the 2007 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii’s version of the Grammy Awards), winning the Best Out of County Artist/Group award at the Fifth Annual Orange County Music Awards, being nominated for Best R&B at the First Annual Southern California Music Awards, selected as the Salt Lake City, UT finalist for the 2006 Virgin College Mega Tour and their placement with the Annual Legends of Rasta Reggae Festival Tour: Universal Love 2006 (formerly known as the Annual Bob Marley Festival Tour). Joining that tour set Mana Poly All-Stars in a line up with nationally recognized artists Wayne Wonder, Ky-Mani Marley, Shinehead and more.

“Mana,” meaning power or great spirit, is the driving force behind this skillful sensation. “Poly,” the shortened version of the word Polynesian, is the culture and heritage of which they are a part. In trying to put together the best Polynesian group imaginable, they sought out musicians who were already established in that particular market. The collaboration of these musical innovators and brilliant song writers helped derive the term “All-Stars.” Thus, the caliber of talent this group possesses is what makes them truly unique.

Formed in the summer of 1999, the Mana Poly All-Stars is definitely setting a new world-wide trend in music. The accomplishments of this eight member ensemble are only the beginning of many great things to come. All that is gained and learned will be reinvested in an effort to inspire and provide avenues for other Polynesian artists who also wish to pursue their dreams. Join MPA as they embark on their mission to spread “feel good” positive music in their communities and throughout the world.
