Island Breeze is an all-star trio blending Hawaiian and Japanese instruments in a creatively inspiring and exciting style. Grammy award-winning Hawaiian slack key guitarist Jeff Peterson and shakuhachi (bamboo flute) master Riley Lee have been performing and recording together for many years but joined forces with taiko master Kenny Endo in 2012 during a week-long residency in which each artist conducted intensive workshops in Honolulu. The trio put together a program of refreshing music—like an “island breeze”—and presented it in concert at the University of Hawai‘i. This collaboration eventually resulted in a CD recording in 2014, and a Nā Hōkū Hanohano nomination in 2015 for Best Instrumental Album of the Year and Best Instrumental Song of the Year.
