Na Kahu''s first release, Aloha Ke Akua, is currently nominated for the Hawaiian Na Hoku Hano Hano Awards and the Hawaii Music Awards for 2005. Produced by Daniel Kikawa as a musical version of his highly regarded book,"Perpetuated in Righteousness",the album was inspired by great times together when those who love Iesu gathered at the beach, a park, or a back yard. "We eat, laugh, kukakuka (talk story), kanikapila (play music), hula and haka. A Sunday party in the country without the drugs, drinking and fighting afterward! Here''s to the best times we have had, and, they are only a taste of the Sunday (everyday) party in Heaven." Don''t miss it!
