Inā - Keola Beamer & Raiatea - Keola Beamer & Raiatea (CD, Album)

Beamer was immediately struck with her soulful yet delicate vocal quality and soon invited her to collaborate. Thematically, the CD draws upon Keola Beamer's life journey. He finds himself part of the older generation, experiencing loss and longing for renewal. Where I Hold You , sung by Raiatea in Hawaiian with refrains in English, refers to, in Keola's words, "that special place in your heart where you hold a memory of somebody.

He sings it in English accompanying himself on slack key. The controlled emotion of his vocals and the signature simplicity of the melody and lyrics making a universal statement as in his refrain:. Prolific Hawaiian composer Kuiokalani Lee whose musical generation came before Beamer's Don Ho sang many of his songs , provides Beamer with an eloquent vehicle for exploring the past in Days of My Youth.

Keola goes solo on English vocals, accompanying himself with softly ornamented ki ho'alu guitar. Two songs by non-Hawaiians continue the theme of love and loss and, with Beamer's deft treatment, become vehicles of Hawaiian expression.

The composer could not have envisioned Beamer's intimate ki ho'alu arrangement accompanied by Harry Willemsen on Indonesian siter. Raiatea handles the vocals in Hawaiian and English with gentle sensitivity.

  3. It almost reminded me of the John Lennon/Yoko Ono album where you have to put up with Yoko's singing some solo tracks in order to hear John Lennon's classics. For me, Keola's vocal tracks took away from the possible greatness the album could have had left alone for Raiatea and her beautiful voice. My recommendation, just download Raiatea's tracks/5.
