ABOUT KAULANA

KAULANA <カウラナ>

PROFILE

2001年に結成し、現在KOSUKE(Vocal&12string Guitar)/KANAYAMA(Ukulele&Guiter)/KUMIKO(Bass&Vocal)の3人で活動中。

コースケの豊かな声量、ハワイアンスピリット溢れる歌声、そして軽快で巧みなトークは、幅広い年齢層のファンから絶大な支持を集める。馴染みのフラソングから少しディープなハワイアンまで幅広いレパートリーも魅力。

ハワイアンに馴染みのない方でも、フラと共に繰り広げられるKaulanaのライブを見れば、ハワイの歴史、豊かな自然に囲まれた島の素晴らしさを感じ、一気に引き込まれてしまう。

フロントマンのコースケはハワイ語での作詞・作曲も手がけ、オリジナル曲を収録したアルバムはHawaii Music Awards International Hawaiian部門を2年連続受賞、ハワイのグラミー賞とも言われるNA HOKU HANOHANO AWARDS International部門で、2012年日本人初の受賞を果たし、まさに名実共に日本を代表するハワイアンバンドである。
