Keola Beamer: Malama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love) (#104)
"The idea of Aloha is Hawai'i's greatest gift to the world. But a lot of people don't know what it is, or how to find it, or how to discover it in our own hearts." These words, spoken by legendary Hawaiian composer and musician Keola Beamer, provide insight to the multi-cultural musical collaboration featured in Keola Beamer: Malama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love). Based upon Beamer's belief that musicians from different backgrounds can remain true to their own cultural heritage while learning and incorporating ideas from others, M??lama Ko Aloha features inspiring and unique musical performances by Beamer and a brilliant ensemble of musicians including Native American flute player R. Carlos Nakai and American jazz pianist virtuoso Geoffrey Keezer. [56 minutes]
