These guys play a delicate but beautiful CSNY-like folk with dual acoustic guitars and lots of peaceful easy feelin'. The addition of what I thought to be a mellotron in track A5, from the rarer second album, made me sit up in my chair, and laugh unintentionally out of sheer surprise:
Our prog-angel the Holy Mellotron turned out to be a string trio on scanning the lyrics sheet unfortunately.
And there are lots of treats on the first, gorgeously-covered Seabird album too to discover.
From discogs a brief bio:
The original Olomana was a duo consisting of Jerry Santos and Robert Beaumont [who wrote most, but not all, of the music here -Ed.]
Beaumont passed away in 1982. Presently Olomana consists of Jerry Santos, Haunani Apoliona, Wally Suenaga, and Willy Paikule.
Note there is a third record from 1980 which I will listen to someday.
Mahalo to these great Hawaiian artists!
