Koa'uka: relaxing mall music

by Rachel Richmond, News editor

Jammin’ beats filled Fort Street Mall Sept. 6 as the local band Koa‘uka played for an afternoon of Music on the Mall. Sponsored by the Student Life Office, Music on the Mall gives students a chance to listen to the sounds of many different local artists thought out the year.

“The music is relaxing. I wish that we could have Music on the Mall more often,” said Jennifer Jaranilla, a senior majoring in Biology, when asked what she thought about the music program.

Koa‘uka played songs from their two CD’s, Tailgate Party and Sticky Koa‘uka Style. Branson Rosa, the group’s guitar player, said that they have a new CD in the works and hope to release it soon.

“They (Koa‘uka) are good, and it’s a good way to kill some time between classes,” said Matt Gallagher, sophomore majoring in communications.

Koa‘uka has been together for four years and plays on a regular basis at Don Ho’s on Wednesdays from 5- 8 p.m., and at Ala Moana Mai Tai Bar from 9:30- 12 p.m. They can also be found at Duke’s on Fridays from 4-6 p.m..

“We play at other places as well but those nights change so if you want to see us for sure we are always at Don Ho’s, The Mai Tai Bar, and Duke’s,” said Rosa.

Koa‘uka is made up of Branson Rosa guitar, Wes Mulivai ukulele, Keahi Lau bass, and Tyrone Cavacungan drums.
