Notes

Native Grooves : Frank Lehua Kawaikapuokalani Hewett and Freddy Von Paraz (Modern Ancient Production) 1998

KUMU hula Frank Hewett and Freddy Von Paraz boldly set the Hawaiian language in a radically different context with this impressive and creative project. These has never been Hawaiian-language music like this.

Hewett chants, sings and narrates tales of Pele and Hi'iaka in Hawaiian and English.

Von Paraz envelopes them in a pastiche of contemporary funk, house and acid jazz arrangements. Hewett's participation ensures cultural authenticity; Von Paraz's inspired use of sampling and sequencing reaffirms his place as one of the most imaginative producers in local music. "Native Grooves" is a musical milestone.
