Keola Beamer
Soliloquy - Ka Leo O Loko (38012)
For over thirty years, Keola Beamer's artistry has helped breathe new life into slack key music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots. For his fifth Dancing Cat release, Keola offers nine original compositions, the most he has ever recorded on a single album, and six Hawaiian classics. All are played in his unique style, which combines his own innovations with traditional slack key. Eight of the songs are played as solo instrumentals to express ka leo o loko (the voice within) and the feeling of solitude.
