Na Mele Henoheno, Vol. 2 collects the best moments from the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau's albums Keala, Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau and Mahalo Ke Akua, which were released between 1978 and 1981. The compilation's 14 songs, like "Pakalolo," "My Yellow Ginger Lei," "Pelekane" and "Waimanalo Blues," capture the group's sunny, mellow vibe, explaining why they are one of Hawaii's most popular groups to this day. ~ Heather Phares
