Kalapana's classic debut. Reissued on vinyl for the first time since the 1970s.
Our 70th release is our biggest yet: Kalapana.
Kalapana is a source of pride for Hawaii. Ever since its 1975 debut, Kalapana’s sound has been difficult to define. It's a style uniquely their own: the sound of a contemporary Hawaii.
Is it rock? Pop? R&B? And yet there’s jazz, soul, and groove embedded into these eleven songs: a sound that remains relevant to Hawaii and its people to this day. Fronted by songwriters Mackey Feary and Malani Bilyeu, with guitarist DJ Pratt and keyboardist Kirk Thompson (the producer behind Lemuria), Kalapana propelled to fame at a time when Hawaii was defining its modern identity; their music forever changed the landscape of the islands.
Our greatest hope is this official vinyl reissue, AGS-070, will continue to perpetuate Kalapana's musical legacy for Hawaii and the world to enjoy.
