Overview

Keal'i Reichel qualifies, hands-down, as the most popular and commercially successful Hawaiian recording artist of the 1990s. A musician who blends contemporary pop sounds with traditional Hawaiian chanting, Reichel originally felt somewhat shy about public performance, and reportedly recorded his debut album for friends only - yet it sold over 350,000 copies, launched one of the most lucrative careers in world music, and generated a plethora of follow-ups. Reichel headlines the performance release Keali'i Reichel: Kukahi: Live in Concert, which features an extended live set by the musician and his backup band, a traditional hula performance, and guest appearances by artists Ben Vegas and Keal'i Ceballos.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Captured live at a 2005 concert, Hawai'i's premier traditionalist, the singer and guitarist Keali'i Reichel shows his considerable ambitions on this DVD. Reichel narrates each performance -- from traditional chants to lilting folk-pop -- with dance, often backed by his own hula, Halau Ke'alaokamaile. A nifty subtitles feature -- in both English and Hawai'ian -- gives viewers a substantial window on Reichel's wide-ranging subject matter. Of special interest to fans of Hawai'ian music is a bonus featurette on Raichel's mentor, Uncle George Holokai, shown in his 70s and still possessed of a trove of cultural wisdom, and a vibrant singer and player, to boot.
