Nohelani Cypriano “Lihue” (1995)

“Lihue” by Nohelani Cypriano (1995)

This might not be the version of Nohelani Cypriano’s “Lihue” you’re used to hearing, but it’s a damn good contender.

From here 1995 CD release, What’s Going On, this “Lihue” successfully swings as much as the original, even though the 1977 is one irreplaceable, downright funky groove.

It’s a worthwhile take, especially if you’re digging for Hawaiian modern soul. I say speed it up a little and you have an updated dancefloor classic, bird calls included.
