Kainalu

Kainalu is a psychedelic funk recording project by multi-instrumentalist, Trent Prall. Drawing influence from modern psych-rock and classic Motown artists he grew up listening to, his unique sound is quickly gaining attention in the music community. Kainalu’s core is rooted in Trent’s Japanese Hawaiian heritage; the word roughly translating to ocean waves, but more personally the concept of the ocean raising and breaking down the islands through time. Kainalu explores this meaning through both its sound and visuals. Joined by Joe Waldbillig (guitar/synth), Evan Nelson (bass), Matthew Allen (drumset), and Aaron Gochberg (conga/percussion), the live band creates a more jam-oriented interpretation of Prall’s recorded music.
