Po & the 4Fathers

Monkeywrench Records and Bam Bam Records presents ...

For a measly two bucks you can check out two songs by Boom Gaspar's band, Po & the 4Fathers.  Digital downloads are available via Ten Club or iTunes.
Po & the 4fathers are Boom Gaspar (keyboard/organist), Kalei Young (bass and drum rhythms) , Roman Corpuz (lead guitar/vocal harmony), Kawai Hoe (vocals), Kiliona Young (vocals).

In 2010, a crew of Hawaiian all-stars - including Boom Gaspar, Kalei Young, and Roman Corpuz - came across the message and music of two unassuming songsters, Kawai Hoe and Kiliona Young. They began to write and play music together later that year. This is their first release.

"As true stewards of their culture, the songs they write and sing deliver penetrating messages of love and consciousness through their perspectives as Maoli (native Hawaiian) people," says Boom Gaspar of Kawai Hoe and Kiliona Young. "Coming together, we create a powerful sound with influences of funk, reggae, hip-hop, rock and soul. A sound that represents the forward movement of modern day Maoli music?.the sound of Po & the 4fathers." 

The tracks are "Kingdom Come" featuring Eddie Vedder on back up vocals and "Do Ya" featuring Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar.
