Mahi Beamer is a singer you have to hear to believe... A tenor, he specializes in the difficult high-register falsetto. His clean, sure, soaring tones are unique and impressive and the selections on this album allow him ample opportunity to demonstrate his virtuosity. Many of the numbers were composed by members of Mahi's own family, the Desha-Beamer ‘ohana, famous for generations as outstanding Hawaiian musicians. Mahi himself is a recipient of many awards, including the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Art's Lifetime Achievement Award. He has also been recognized by the State of Hawai‘i as a steward of his Grandmother's music and "the leader in the dissemination and perpetuation of the cultural legacy of Helen Desha Beamer.

Lyrics, translations and information about each song are included in the 12-page CD folder.
