Lawa kicks ass. On an island crawling with sometimes amazing, always
colorful musical talent, Lawa fuses a bunch of different styles
together. The result is a flawless, funky sound that really can’t be
compared to anything else going on in Maui. Local, yes. How can you not
like that? Screw like—How can you not love them? As a side note, Lawa
has more 2,600 friends on MySpace, which is not just impressive, but
excellent evidence that they are indeed the best band on Maui.
