Hawaii Hit Band Kapala Takes You On a Waimanalo Jam, 96795 – Top CD in my Collection Right Now!

I dabbled around in the music industry for almost 30 years.  Played a little guitar, help a few artists get there demos straight and actually made $1.50  🙂  My ears are tuned in for looking, listening to new music that breaks the barriers of ho-hum tail-chasing no hit worthy noise.  I FOUND ONE – Kapala!

I got their début CD “Imprint” when it released and was so set back at how the music did what music is supposed to do, take you one a theater-of-the-mind ride from reality; the perfect escape.  I was quickly drawn to the contemporary track called Nani Hanalei; full chicken skin.  Guest chant by Keali`i Reichel and the music arrangement took the Aloha to another level.  Even my daughters who listen to current kid pop/hip hop love it (phew, thought their sonic ear taste was doomed).

Next track and to me, one of best arranged and produced tracks on the CD is 96795 – Which is the zip code of Waimanalo.  Along with this track is the bands first produced video (see below).  As well, what a line-up of musicians!  All these guys are some of Hawaii’s most well known. On the top music promotions site ReverbNation, Kapala has held down the #1 spot in Top World local artists for weeks.

All that being said, I’ll shut up and spread the Kapala Aloha.  Check out their profile on ReverbNation to learn more about Kapala.  Below are a couple of videos and a link to their FaceBook Fan page.  Mark my words, though Kapala is made of some of Hawaii’s best, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  They will leave a legacy if they keep releasing music like this!
