Kalama O Kauaʻi: The Songs of Nathan Kalama, Volume One (CD)

Kalama O Kauaʻi: The Songs of Nathan Kalama, Volume One pays tribute to the amazing songwriting skills of Kumu Hula Nathan Kalama, founder of The Mālie Foundation. The collection features the talents of multi Nā Hōkū Hanohano award winning artists Hōkū Zuttermeister, Mark Yamanaka, Kūpaoa, and Poʻokela Wood with additional musical contributions by Les Ceballos and Justin Firmeza. All songs were composed by Nathan Kalama with the exception of I Wili ʻIa Kou Lei, which was written for Uncle Nathan by Kumu Hula (and now Executive Director of The Mālie Foundation), Maka Herrod. 


The album comes complete with a full set of liner notes which include lyrics and translations for each song as well as a synopsyis about the inspiration behind each composition.


Uncle Nathan was a true beacon for Kauaʻi, shining the light on the beauty of Hawaiian language and culture for all to enjoy. This album is our way of honoring his legacy. All proceeds from the album are used to support the programming and events organized by The Mālie Foundation.
