One thing about @lagasaveamusic you’ll never skip any of his songs. Musical genius and a great man. Manuia Lou Malaga Brother
As you may have noticed, I personally have a natural passion for island music. I’ve always appreciated it…as a guitarist, a blues guy at heart, it wasn’t until my wife and I went to Hawaii that I really started to appreciate the kind of island and reggae music I grew up with Listen…really respect and love music as I do now (island music and 50’s rock is all I’ve heard since my trip abroad!). Recently, I spotted some great talent since Hawaii in May: Kiwini Vaitai, Laga Savea, Kabani, Te Vaka, and more. I had some free time the other day browsing iTunes for some sweeter island music. How are my search results? I found this guy: K’Nova.
I am very impressed with K’Nova. The sincerity of his voice and the roughness of his voice are second to none. He sounds almost like an island version of Lil’ Wayne, stripped of the golden teef, and there’s more to the sound than just melody. If Lil’ Wayne was Polynesian and… could actually sing like a pro, this is what Lil’ Wayne would sound like. Another impressive thing about this album is that it was produced by George Veikoso (better known as Fiji) and Laga Savea himself. It’s a beautiful debut album that will leave you wanting more.
What is it about this music that fascinates me? It reminds me of the peace of mind, trees, sky, water, perfect humidity, sunshine and aloha that Hawaii brings to my mind.
