CD Reviews: Alt/Air and Voices of Our Kupuna

Music reviews of Alt/Air and Voices of Our Kupuna.


Published:

LISTEN: Alt/Air

Alt/Air EP




Hawaii’s got a lot of great musicians, but it sometimes seems as though every new act is either Jawaiian or herky-jerky indie rock. So it’s refreshing to encounter Alt/Air, a duo that mixes electronic dance music with J-Pop-esque vocal hooks. This debut EP might not have the whimsy of their live performances (dancing robots and kitty-cat masks, anyone?), but the propulsive, late-night feel makes us jones for a full-length album.

 

WATCH: Voices of Our Kupuna

Hula Preservation Society




For more than a decade now, Maile Loo-Ching and the Hula Preservation Society have been recording oral histories of hula’s most revered kupuna, hundreds of hours’ worth. Very little of the footage has yet been published, but this DVD, the nonprofit’s first, offers a tantalizing preview of the archive being built. The deep knowledge and kolohe wit displayed by kumu hula Nona Beamer, George Naope and Kahili Long Cummings are a treat for anyone who loves Hawaiian arts and culture.
