Hawaiian Music in 432 Hz

„A=432 Hz,“ according to Attuned Vibrations, „known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature.“ Attuned Vibrations further discusses the universal music of sacred geometry and its healing benefits.

I was waiting for Hawaiian music in 432 Hz to magically appear on Youtube, however, the wait was long. Then I realized that I would need to create the music collection on behalf of Sugar Cane Culture Club. This introduction video is a minor comparison of the standard 440 Hz and the universal 432 Hz:

<iframe width=“560″ height=“315″ src=“; frameborder=“0″ allowfullscreen><!–iframe>

The following Israel Kamakawio’ole’s recordings were converted from 440 Hz to 432 Hz. Give a listen and check for yourself if there is any difference. To assist with hearing the minor adjustment, it is recommended one use over-the-ear headsets.

2015 Miss Aloha Hula of Merrie Monarch Festival

2015 Miss Aloha Hula of Merrie Monarch Festival! Wonderfully light footed hula dancers competing for Miss Aloha Hula title in solo performances this morning. I was up a little before 6:00 AM (UTC+01:00), so my set up was half hazard with sprawling wires leading from the workroom to the bedroom. I sat up half asleep at the edge of the bed near the doorway wondering, „Why don’t things work?“

Miss Aloha Hula took place Thursday 18:00, 9 April 2015 at the Edith Kanaka’ole Stadium in Hilo, Hawai’i. The hula competition has contestants performing hula in kahiko (traditional) and ‚auana (modern), as well as oli (chanting). The following audio recordings are of the Miss Aloha Hula contestants‘ oli. Order of appearance and 2015 Merrie Monarch Festival lineup with the final five counting down to 2015 Miss Aloha Hula of the Merrie Monarch Festival.

KEALE: Hawai’ian Music

KEALE: Hawai’ian music in Switzerland. Cousin of late Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole, performs 30. April 2015. Hawai’ian cultural event with performing artists. Hawai’i kommt in die Schweiz!

The Hawai’i Event in Switzerland brings Keale’s music (mele: Hawaiian for song) to the stage! Lineage is important and Keale is an accomplished family name with musicality and other performing art talents. The Keale family includes Wilfred Nalani “Moe” Keale (03. December 1939-15. April 2002), an ukulele virtuoso and American actor. His acting roles included reoccuring role as Truck Kealoha on the original Hawai’i Five-O (1968-1980), and as Officer O’Saughnessy in The Brian Keith Show (September 1972-March 1974). Moe’s music includes:

  • Hawai’i’s Treasure: Uncle Moe Keale Live in Waikiki (2005)
  • South Sea Island Magic (2000)
  • Imagine (1996)
  • Aloha is a Part of Me (1995)

In an interview with Steven Wildsmith, “Hawai’ian musician… Keale brings island songs to East Tennessee,” and last updates 4. June 2014, Keale reveals himself as a reluctant performing artists. “I didn’t like to get attention,” commented Keale during his interview with Wildsmith, “because I thought God should be the focus. People would give me a compliment, and I would give guitars away and not play for three years, because I didn’t want to dishonor the Creator.” [Steven Wildsmith, of The Daily Times, writes for a family-owned periodical based Maryville, Tennessee of the Grate Smoky Mountains. Since 1883, the newspaper has delivered local news to its readers in the Blount County, Tennessee.] Wildsmith’s interview reveals Keale’s uncle visiting him the day following Moe’s death in 2002. Sitting on a beach, Moe sat next to Keale and encouraged him to deliver his music. “You are Keale,” Keale took away from their meeting. “It’s my family’s traditional name, and it means when the wave begins to crest. It means that’s the signal that the wave is coming,” Wildsmith reported from his interview.

Along side Keale’s uncle Moe is Keale’s cousin Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, who achieved fame for his Hawai’ian-style remake of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” For most of his life, Keale grew up as a fan of music, and even though he got his first ukulele at the age of 36, he never thought about performing publicly: “Why pick it up when you’re around these masters?” he said with a laugh.

Israel “Bruddah Iz” Kamakawiwo’ole discography: Studio albums:
  • Ka ‘Ano’i (1990)
  • Facing Future (1993)
  • E Ala E (1995)
  • N Dis Life (1996)

Compilation albums:

  • Iz in Concert: The Man and His Music (1998)
  • Alone in IZ World (2001)
  • Wonderful World (2007)
  • Over the Rainbow (2011)

Wildsmith’s interview uncovers Keale as the son of a father from Arkansas and native Hawai’ian mother. (His paternal grandfather’s uncle was Tom Mix, a silent film star.) He was reared in “Indian country” located outside of Yosemite National Park, where he  developed a taste for social justice issues through his interest in Native American rights. Keale’s path the music follows his work as a seminary professor, where he taught Hebrew and Greek. After being persuded by his uncle Moe, according to Wildsmith’s interview, “he realized that the shadows cast by his uncle and cousin were large ones to live up to.” The important message from Wildsmith’s reporting is Keale’s quote: I think that the number one thing for music to do is to share healing and unconditional love and justice. I talk a lot and do a lot of storytelling — I might do a 9-minute introduction to a 2-minute song — but I’m real easy with people, so it doesn’t feel awkward. I’m not an entertainer; I’m an educator, and that’s how I feel — that music is more educational than entertaining, because there’s always something to be said.”

Keale was reluctant to enter into the music scene because of what Moe and Iz experienced in the industry, as reported by Melissa Moniz, of MidWeek Publishings-an O’ahu Publication Company, with her interview with the musician in the summer of 2007. Moniz asked an interesting question: If you could just send out one message through your music, what would that be? In his interview, Keale replied: Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka  ʻĀina I Ka Pono. The land does not breathe when we are not pono (Hawai’ian for righteous). As long as we are not pono, we’ve got to change. We have to really get on with it. It’s all about perpetuating this thing that Ke Akua (God) created. Save the date: 09. May 2015 to experience Hawai’ian culture with Keale and other Hawai’ian performing artists.

He also studied several genres including Latin, classical and folk to name a few. Danny Carvalho was the first slack key guitarist featured on US nationally syndicated radio program “From the Top” in 2004.

Keale, cousin to the late Israel Kamakawiwo’ole—famed for remake of “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” At age 36, Keale started `ukulele and performed in public since 2003. As a member of Kaukahi, the band won four Hoku Hanohano awards. Keale interests include Native American rights and social justice issues. His music promotes justice, healing, and unconditional love.

Stephen Inglis was born and reared on O’ahu. His musical influences include John Coltrane, with the song catalog of Bob Dylan. He began his musical career as a rock guitarist, then he developed into a virtuoso of Hawaiian slack key guitar. His music release, “Waimaka Helelei: Dennis Kamakahi” (2011), is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

Chris Lau, son of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival director Milton Lau, is a bass player who will accompany the slack key guitar musicians on stage. His work has also been featured on several slack key guitar productions.

Milton Lau started he Hawaiian Slack Key Festival in 1982 to preserve and perpetuate a unique Hawaiian tradition and to pay tribute to Gabby „Pops“ Pahinui, a Hawaiian music performer. Mr. Lau is a recognized music producer with his label: Ka-Hoku Productions. He has organized over 90 festivals and is an accomplished muscian. Mr. Lau also founded the Ki-ho’alu Foundation.

Ian O’Sullivan is classically-trained composer and guitarist from the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawai’i. His Western classical repertoire complements his Hawai’ian slack-key guitar and the ‘ukulele. His training and musicality brought him Carnegie’s Weil Recital Hall and other renowned stages. As a child, Ian played the ‘ukulele by ear; as Kamehameha Schools student, he experimented with various genres of music. While attending the University of Hawai’i, he was introduced to clasical guitar by Gramy Award winning artist and UH lecturer Jeff Peterson. Ian became the first guitar student from Hawai’i accepted into Yale University’s School of Music. Ian successfully funded his release Ka’ena to Kahuku with a Kickstarter fundraiser.

LT Smooth was born and raised in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Because LT Smooth’s early life was stricken with substance abuse, his music promotes “heal[ing for] what we go through in life…” and “about my journey through the struggles.” He is versatile in most genres and is multi-instrumental. He resides in Kona of Hawai’i’s Big Island.

Harry B. Soria was born into a radio broadcast family—with a 90-year history on Hawai’i’s airwaves.

Slack Key Guitar History

Ob die Slack Key Guitar nun von Portugal oder von den mexikanischen Einwanderern im Jahre 1837 nach Hawai’i eingeführt wurde, ist unwichtig. Die Gitarre hat die hawaiianische Musik und Kultur für immer verändert. Durch den König Kamehameha V. und Kalaakaua mit der Nachfolgerin Lili’uokalani, welche eine grosse Beziehung zu Belgien und England hatte, schlug sich das Europäische auch vermehrt in der hawaiianischen Musik nieder.

Die hawaiianische Musik hatte auf die amerikanische Musik und auf die Hollywood-Filmgeschichte einen markanten Einfluss. Sie prägte die Rock-, die Hip Hop-Musik und speziell den Delta-Blues.

Die Musikgeschichte von den polynesischen Inseln ist immens gross im Vergleich zur ihrer Grösse der Inseln.

Hawai’i und die weiteren polynesischen Inseln beherbergen eine Unmenge von verschiedenen Musik-Stilen von Musikgruppen und Orchestern.
