multi-chambered huaca by Sharon Rowell

Listen to an excerpt of "Kanaha"

Alan Tower has composed a large body of musical works for Sharon Rowell's multi-chambered ocarinas, or "huacas." An avid windsurfter, Alan named this piece for Kanaha, a beautiful beach on the island of Maui, a place where the grass, sand, sun, water and wind intersect for the perfect windsurfing experience.
