When you hear Lono sing and play a song, especially an original about Hawaii, you sense his love, his aloha for his native aina. Lono was raised on Molokai, left as a young man to explore the other islands (Oahu, Maui) and the mainland, doing many jobs but learning that music was the centre of his life. Lono is a true artist, committed to the preservation of the Hawaiian cultural tradition.
 
Over the years he has produced about a dozen albums, all featuring his special style on the ukulele and guitar, and many focussed on his original music of Hawaii, especially Molokai. In his early years his music was of the more popular variety, playing in various music venues (clubs, hotels) and travelling the Hawaii and mainland circuit to have his music heard.  As a seasoned musician he returned to Molokai and developed his own style of traditional Hawaiian music he calls Old Style."
 
He now has eight Old Style albums and each carries his imprint on the beauty of this land, especially Molokai. In the first of these albums, he played and sang a number of the well known songs of popular Hawaiian musicians and music (Johnny Alemeda, Auntie Genoa). As this series of Old Style music continued over the years, he more and more wrote and sang about Molokai; it's people, it's aina, it's stories. In these albums he sings both in Hawaiian and English, sometimes a mixture of the languages.  He writes and sings about night rainbows, travelling rocks to build heiaus, waterfalls, all the winds that cradle the island, special people who inhabit this land. If you are looking for a sweet introduction to Molokai, these eight Old Style albums are for you.
 
And now we have the newest Lono: Old Style 8. This album with it's perfect mixture of songs and instrumentals continues the music about Molokai, its land and its people, with the meles in both languages. And there is a special "gift" at the end for all to share. The first song, "Simple Life" sets the tone for the album, which presents the soft, sweet life of Molokai, the most Hawaiian of the islands. All of the meles feature the touch and expertise of Lono's ukulele and guitar, all have the beauty of Lono's writing, playing and singing. The CD itself is exceptionally well produced - literally every note is done with care and precision. In the last song about eagles, there is even a reference to Canada where he has many fans.
 
The "gift" in this album is a six-part, thirty minute story, or "Mo'olelo," about the history, myth, legend, of the world and eventually Molokai's place in it, called "Mu to Molokai." This ancient story gives not only the history, but the cultural roots of Molokai (Hawaii) which still applies to today's world. From ancient cultural roots to modern time, this story is about a possible history, but mainly it tells the way we all can learn to become good people, the philosophy of aloha, the understanding of "pono," the path of righteousness.
 
With an open mind, this is a powerful story of Hawaiian truth and spirituality and In Lono's telling, "pono" is the key. Whether history, myth, reality or tradition, this is an amazing story.
