Raiatea: Sea of Love

Raiatea: Sea of Love
Title: Sea of Love
Label: Raiatea Helm

As a courageous 'new traditionalist' of Hawaiian music, Raiatea Helm's collection of songs in Sea of Love takes the musical styling's of the late 1950's and early 1960's and makes them fresh through vibrant, innovative arrangements. This collection of songs draws upon the signature sounds of a bygone era in Waikïkï and captures the sizzle of brushes on a snare drum and 'sock' cymbal, the use of maracas, congas and bongos, and the uplifting rhythms of the vibraphones, bass, steel guitar, 'ukulele and piano. When Raiatea's sparkling vocals are placed within the energy of this effervescent instrumentation, she breathes new life to songs from a bygone era that were once performed throughout Waikïkï and known simply as 'Hawaiian Club' music.
