Aloha, thanks for checking out our website! Music is a powerful tool in the development of young children, and for 25 years we have enjoyed producing the best kid's music from the Hawaiian Islands!
Hawaii has many important treasures - the environment, plants and animals, blending of many cultures - but the most important treasure of all are the children of Hawaii. Our songs share the fun, joy and energy of our Island home not only here but also with our global neighbors.
We invite you to be part of this exciting island music experience, and hope that your family will soon be learning Hawaiian words, dancing and singing along!
Let us hear from you! We appreciate your comments and welcome your questions.
Please feel free to E-mail us anytime.

Parent Reviews (from Amazon)
"My son loves this... and so did I as a girl. My 13 month old son loves this DVD- he laughs and claps and dances along with the songs. I have given 5 copies of this DVD to kids from one to eight, and recieved rave reviews in return. It is a classic Hawaii must buy! Keiki Calabash still a hit!"

"Leon & Malia are wonderful!. The families here at Healthy Start experienced the magic of their performances and the absolute Aloha they communicate with their music. It is a wonderful experience for our keiki who come from difficult circumstances and have little opportunity to partake in such an uplifting time!"
