Title - 'Aloha Radio Hawaii'
Artist - Various
For those not in the know, Aloha Radio Hawaii, produced in Dolby Atmos, is a delightful musical journey to the Golden Age of Hawaiian song.
Blending traditional Hawaiian classics with American fusion music – known as hapa haole – this thirteen-track masterpiece tells the story of the Islands and the true meaning of ‘aloha’ through vibrant, multidimensional sound.
The team behind the album includes producer Yunchuan Ye; four-time Grammy winning sound engineer, Dave Way; several veteran U.S. Hawaiian musicians; and singer Tavita Te’o.
The immersive retro-nostalgic sound they cultivate is the definition of paradise found and here within these thirteen tracks, the true depth of dedicated sentimentality shines through.
Indeed, legendary engineer Dave Way builds upon his impressive and star-studded career, and joining him is producer Yunchuan Ye, as well as musicians Ken Emerson, Dean Parks, Jim Kimo West, Aubrey Richmond, Nick Mancini, Tavita Te’o, David P. Jackson, and James Cruce.

This magnificent experience of the ‘aloha’ spirit is oh-so majestically encapsulated here in their mastery of dozens of vintage instruments, including ukulele, Hawaiian steel guitar, electric guitar, vibraphone, and more.
Recorded in the legendary Henson Studios, Los Angeles using the aforementioned Dolby Atmos immersive sound, where "Sound has never sounded so good!", this enthrallingly magnificent tribute to the Golden Age of Hawaiian Song brings forth beloved singer Tavita Te'o (presented here, shall we say, as our honorable Master of Ceremonies), as he takes us on our journey through the intoxicating sounds from back in the day; when Hawaiian and American popular culture had the whole world dreaming about Little Grass Shacks!
Rhymoi's producer, Yuchuan Ye selceted thirteen classic songs from the traditional Hawaiian and Hapa Haole repertoire dating from the late 19th century to the mid-19th century.
It is the story of the Hawaiian Islands in sound, a musical memory that blends native Hawaiian and American cultures.
It is also a musical journey not to leave untaken for, and together with the the aforementioned group of veteran U.S Hawaiian musicians and their dozens of priceless antique guitars of various shapes and sounds, let alone other vintage instruments, Aloha Radio Hawaii abounds with authentically recreated performances from the Golden Age of Hawaiian song in full, and oh-so most glorious, retro-nostalgic sound.
