ABOUT THE SONGS
01 Let’s Go by Naoto Imai
Naoto imagined the summer breeze and passionate atmosphere of the season.

02 Horizon by Kazuki Imai
Kazuki tried to express the "new horizon" of their sound. As a metaphor, he imagined the unseen realm of ocean; beyond the horizon.

03 Turn It Up by Naoto Imai
Naoto had great motivation in making something technical musically. This song was written after a period of practice, and culminated into a great composition.

04 Wākea
by Kazuki Imai
Kazuki came up with the melody while reading about Hawaiian mythology; in the very beginning, the world was created by Papa and Wākea. Kazuki composed this song by appreciating everything they have.

05 Chinaman’s Hat
by Kazuki Imai
Kazuki & Naoto have visited Hawaiʻi every year since they were born, and Chinamanʻs Hat is one of the most memorable place for them. Kazuki wrote this song with the memory of their past visits and the pentatonic scale.


06 Kāneʻohe Slack Key
by Kazuki Imai
Both Kazuki and Naoto learned hula in Kāne`ohe from a young age, and one of their motivation to start playing the ʻukulele was to play along with hula. This song was inspired from his memory in Kāneʻohe.

07 Reverie
by Naoto Imai
Naotoʻs goal was to compose something unique. In this song there are no strumming chords, only picking. He imagined the daydream which appears in the midst of their daily life.

08 Opus 4 in Ab
by Kazuki Imai
Kazuki tried to compose classical-feel-song which he was interested in for a long time. Classical music has always been his motivation to his music.


09 Koko Head
by Kazuki & Naoto Imai
They composed this song after a visit to Hawaii in 2012. Naoto hiked up Koko Head trail without water, and learned important lessons after the hike. They made wrote this song about that experience.


10 Ten
by Kazuki Imai
Getting back to basics, C is the first chord they learned when Kazuki and Naoto first played the ʻukulele. Kazuki wrote this song in commemorating their 10th anniversary of their music career.


11 Stars
by Kazuki Imai
When they are in the light, they can't see the stars. They notice the stars while being in darkness. He wrote this song for everyone who has supported them.


12 The Break of Dawn by Kazuki and Naoto Imai
They wrote this song for the first album. They came up with the idea while hearing the news that Japan was decided to host the 2020 Olympic games. At that time, they felt the hope for the future. This is a song for the future.
