First Album “Be Still My Heart”: Queen Liliʻuokalani Songs Collection Volume 1


Hiliu arranged and recorded Queen Liliʻuokalani’s music as contemporary music or easy listening music, and done sociably in order to hand down to future generations. Hiliu’s freshman album releasing in December 2019.

“Be Still My Heart” was released in 2019 and was selected for the playlist at Aloha Joe (a radio station in Hawaii) and was also promoted and featured in magazines.
This album was a finalist for a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award, despite the fact that “Be Still My Heart” was Hiliu’s very first album.

2019年に発表したデビューアルバム 「Be Still My Heart」は、ハワイアンのラジオ局 (Aloha Joe)でプレイリストに入り、雑誌でも取り上げられる。そして、新人アーティストにも関わらず、ハワイのグラミー賞と言われるNā Hōkū Hanohano Awardsのファイナリストにノミネートされる。

The harmonic vocal unit “Hiliu”, means the sound or call of the wind instrument, the Hawaiian conch shell. The Huliu has been used to fanfare our performances since 2014. Our debut album, released in December 2019, includes songs either composed or related to Queen Liliʻuokalani.

Queen Liliʻuokalani was the last Queen of the Hawaiian kingdom. She succeeded to the throne as the Queen of Hawai‘i following the death of the former king and her elder brother, David Kalākaua on January 29, 1891. However, Queen Liliʻuokalani and the kingdom of Hawai‘i were overthrown by the provisional government which was assisted by the U.S. military on January 17, 1893. As a result, she abdicated her throne and Hawaiʻi was annexed to the United States.

Queen Liliʻuokalani composed a total of 165 pieces in her 79 years of life. On this album, we arranged and recorded Queen Liliʻuokalani’s music as contemporary, easy listening music and done sensitively in order to hand down to future generations. By sharing Queen Liliʻuokalani’s music, we hope you will become more familiar with the history and legends of Hawai‘i.
