The Grammy-nominated vocalist, composer, and arranger Perla Batalla was born in Los Angeles. Her father was a musician and owned a popular Spanish language record store. She first gained international attention as a backup singer for Leonard Cohen who later encouraged Perla to embark on a solo career.
For over thirty years, Keola Beamer's artistry has helped breathe new life into slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots.
Keola was one of the first to use slack key techniques to create contemporary music that is as much at home in jazz or classical forums as in Hawaiian music. And he was one of the first to integrate Hawaiian chants and instruments, like the tiny gourd whistle and the nose flute, with contemporary forms of music. He was recently nominated for a Grammy for his Malama Ko Aloha CD, and is featured on the soundtrack for The Descendants, also nominated for a Grammy in 2013. Keola Beamer has become a Hawaiian music legend, having grown up in one of Hawai'i's most famous music families. Now one of Hawai'i's premier singer-songwriters, arrangers, composers and masters of the Hawaiian slack key guitar, Keola Beamer's breadth of talent springs from 5 generations of family musical history that traces its involvement in Hawaiian music and hula at least as far as back as the 15th Century.
