Kukahi Lee Album Release Party



A few nights ago a select group of industry folk gathered at the American Lounge nestled inside The Record Parlour in Hollywood for an intimate performance by Hawaiian multi-instrumentalist Kukahi Lee to celebrate the release of his second album, Human.


His family was flew out for the special occasion.


Kukahi started writing music when he was 6 years old and released his self-titled debut last year at the age of 16. The musical prodigy is being considered for a nomination at the 40th annual Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, which is Hawaii’s version of the Grammy Awards, taking place on May 20th.



In celebration of the album’s release Kukahi performed songs from Human, which were composed with one common theme – togetherness.


Describing his sound as experimental pop, the songs on his current release are structured around feelings of love, angst, encouragement, compassion, and anger. The lyrics were meant to bring mankind together because, “Regardless of our differences, we are all ‘human’.”


Kukahi means “unique” in Hawaiian, and the talented artist strives to live up to his name by creating uniqueness in both his genre of musical compositions as well as his own distinct personality. This vision resonates throughout the album, which presents a fusion of punk, blues, folk, rock, rap, funk, flamenco and a dash of Hawaiian slack key guitar.
