Music Mondays - Aulani: Music of the Maka'ala
Aloha! Last week my family and I were on vacation in Hawaii (Oahu). We are Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Members and our home resort is the Aulani. We feel lucky to be able to enjoy time at this very beautiful resort. One of the elements that I love is the music that you hear as you enter the lobby (Maka'ala) of the Aulani.
The music at the Aulani was written specifically for the resort. Here's a video Disney released prior to the opening of the Aulani so you can get an appreciation for the thoughtfulness that went into the music of the resort.
I find Aulani: Music of the Maka'ala by Keali'i Reichel very majestic, peaceful and beautiful. It's also an example of the attention to detail that Disney is known for. I am happy that there is just not any kind of Hawaiian music that greets you at the Aulani, but Disney original Hawaiian music.
I was very excited to learn that you can purchase the music on iTunes. So now when I want to remember some family vacation memories or just to relax, I can listen to the Music of the Maka'ala.
I will be sharing our Aulani vacation over the next couple weeks.
