Music director Curtis Kamiya describes the new Mango Season album as “more ambitious, with a full funky groove and focus on a bigger, juicer sound.” Get a taste of their full album here.
Mango Season came to life on the Honolulu music scene in 2009 as an acoustic Hawaiian folk trio performing on the streets and in the dive bars of Chinatown. Evolving their sound to incorporate vintage soul, jazz infused harmonies and a shock of funk groove, the members draw their inspiration from music as diverse as old school ’70’s funk/soul (Earth, Wind & Fire), with hints of world jazz (Pink Martini) and contemporary Hawaiian sizzle (Kalapana). Their sophomore record, Point Panic, is their most creative and energetic material yet.

As always, stay hungry loves!
