Kohala - Cool Breeze
Cool Breeze is a Na Hoku Hanohano Award finalist and debuted in the top ten on the New Age Radio Charts. The music was composed by the trio, except for “I Will” (The Beatles); “Sunlight, Moonlight” (a popular song in Hawaii during the 70s); and “Manatsuno Katjitsu”. “Manatsuno Katjitsu” was a special request by Tokyo FM, and the radio station debuted Kohala's version of this well-known and loved Japanese song. The music on the recording is influenced by a variety of cultures found in the Hawaiian Islands: Hawaiian, Latin, Japanese, Pacific Rim. Kohala has added percussion accompaniment to their three acoustic guitars.
