Ledward Ka'apana, the incomparable slack key master joins 12-string maestro "Hawaiian Boy" Mike Ka'awa for a legendary night of music. Multi Grammy winner Led Kaapana has collaborated onstage with a dazzling list of musicians including Alison Krauss, Sonny Landreth, Chet Atkins, Leo Kotke, Taj Mahal, Ry Cooder and Tal Farlow. Led’s fret board technique and soaring vocals are legendary. Mike Kaawa, heir to Sonny Chillingworth, Gabby Pahinui and Atta Isaacs is the integrator of endless styles including jazz, ragtime, cachicachi, and those indefinable transpacific steamer blues.
Force of Nature was recorded live at Seattle's Triple Door. The CD emulates a legendary Sunday jam sessions at Honey's in Kaneohe, where Mike and the guys had been playing all afternoon. Ledward blew in like a cool wind out of the Ko'olau Mountains, a force of nature.
