Great to see a CD...

I've caught HAPA Live in small venues like Chai's Island Grill where the seating is limited and you have a front row seat and talked with them afterwards, to concert halls in Seattle, to ground blessings like the Best Buy parking lot (was the asphault HOT!) in Honolulu... and in each case, they brought new flavor and nuances to their performances. I think a LIVE CD helps to showcase their talent, although it must really be witnessed firsthand.

All of their songs are mainstays on Hawaiian radio and pumping new life into those tunes helps reinvigorate those very treasured songs in the way that HAPA does them best.

Ku'u Lei Awapuhi is a good example - a well known song before HAPA ever did their version, but made even more beloved afterward - and to many younger people, their first introduction to the song. The live version adds subtle changes to a timeless, song I simply love.
