Album Notes
Journey home to Kauai with visits on Big Island, Maui, Molokai, Kahoolawe, and Niihau. Kauai Homecoming is sweet, smooth instrumental acoustic ki ho'alu guitar with the rolling waves of Kepuhi Bay, Molokai in the background including traditional and original compositions that touch the heart and make magical moments to remember forever. Again, the artists remain true to the old style of ki ho'alu and incorporate ukulele, ipu, and ohe hano ihu (Hawaiian nose flute).

Audience and listener comments:
"Your music enhances the sunset and makes an incredibly special experience."

"I work in the pineapple fields and when I get home my hands really hurt. I have a special cream that I rub on them and it soothes them and makes them feel better. Your music is like that cream."

"Whenever the stresses of daily life start to get to me, I put your CDs in the player and within seconds I feel my body and mind relax and I feel myself on the beach with you at sunset contemplating the important things like health, peace, and family."

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.

"Each child born has at birth, a Bowl of perfect Light. If he tends his light, it will grow in strength and he can do all things - swim with the shark, fly with the birds, know and understand all things. If, however, he becomes envious or jealous he drops a stone into his Bowl of Light and some of the Light goes out. Light and the stone cannot hold the same space. If he continues to put stones in the Bowl of Light, the Light will go out and he will become a stone. A stone does not grow, nor does it move. If at any time he tires of being a stone, all he needs to do is turn the bowl upside down and the stones will fall away and the Light will grow once more."
- a traditional story from Molokai, Hawaii; Tales of the Night Rainbow by Pali Jae Lee and Koko Willis

Kauai Homecoming
The music of these gifted artists takes me back to the wonderful days spent on Kauai and at Hanalei where I heard them in person. There is nothing to equal these sweet sounds of Hawaii!

Doug and Sandy's music just makes me feel at peace and reminds me of the beauty
Kauai Homecoming allows aloha to flow through me reminding me of the beauty of Kauai and the aloha experienced there. I listen to it whenever I'm in the car so the choke traffic in South Florida is easier to bear. I find myself slowing down, smiling at drivers! And guess what, most of the time they smile back! I am listening right now and the music gives me chills and I just feel good. Mahalo Doug and Sandy for your beautiful music.

All is well with the world once you pop this CD in
I am not usually an emotional person-the beauty of Kauai kept moving me to tears-the view of Hanalei Bay, lushness of the North Shore, the Mai Tai's, waterfalls & Sunsets-this CD brings a tear to my eye every time with my honeymoon memories & brings a feeling of peace & contentment. I think you should buy it now!
