Aloha Hapa, Aloha San Diego

This was Nathan Aweau's first appearance in San Diego since leaving popular Hawaiian folk band Hapa. The venue at the Bali Hai, though oddly configured, provided an intimate atmosphere for music.

Opening for Aweau was the Kalama Brothers, who began the evening with several original songs that ranged from ballads to island reggae. Their performance was inconsistent at times but showed flashes of tightened harmonies in their slower material.

Nathan's entrance was quick — an “Aloha” to the audience, and immediately into his take on traditional Hawaiian song “Latitu.” Aweau followed with mostly original material, which included songs written in English and Hawaiian. The highlight of the show was Aweau’s skill on a seven-string electric bass. His solo performance of that instrument was the equivalent of experiencing a drum solo by Alex Van Halen — a ten-minute experience of varying tempos and rhythms that kept the audience hooting and on their feet. Aweau closed the evening with an original composition, a touching song dedicated to his father who Aweau told us was in surgery that night.
