Charles Recaido whose expertise in the studio brought this
project together. Thank you for being so easy to work with and for adding your incredible guitar and percussion on those songs
that just needed a little something extra. You are awesome!
Kawika Kahiapo who wowed us with your talent and humbled
us with your spirit. Watching you breeze through those songs was an experience in and of itself. We are honored to have worked
with you and to have experienced the presence of Ke Akua through you. You are a special brother.
Leon Siu and Wayne Santos, great friends and brothers who
played rhythm and bass guitar on Indian Blood. We were blessed by the best of the best and we thank Yihowa for the gifts that
He gave you. We thank you for sharing them with us.
Gaymond Apaka our beloved pastor, friend, brother and uncle.
Your ukulele added just the right touch on Puhi Bay and your Jorie jabbing at the end left us speechless, for which we
are sure that you are grateful. Do you really think that they will believe that fish story?
Mickey Ioane, another talented friend, uncle and brother.
Thanks for the Conga's on Come Closer and Puhi Bay. The Puhi Bay "party"at the end of the song would not have been
as much fun without you. You brought both the Aloha and Holy Spirit with you.
Elena Apaka and Pattie Ioane whose love and sisterhood are
so important to us. Thanks for the laughs, Elena. Oh, and Pattie... E hele mai ! ...anytime, for we are 'ohana.
Moses Crabbe who delivered the Oli at the end of 'Hawaiian
Skies' with a powerful anointing from Ke Akua, Creator God.The English
words can be found in Second Chronicles 7:14 with the addition of the Hawaiian State Motto, "The life of the land is perpetuated
in Righteousness." Mahalo, too, for the beautiful translation of the chorus of 'Hawaiian Skies'.
Daniel Kikawa and his beautiful wife, Yolanda,
whose friendship, love, support and encouragement kept us on the path. Knowing you has changed our lives. -Mahalo plenty!
