Dog the Bounty Hunter’s show features songs from local artists
Reality TV show “Dog the Bounty Hunter” is set to debut its 8th season next week.
Shot partly in Hawaii, producers will also feature songs performed by local musicians.
Olena Heu sat down with a local artist with a very familiar name who’s been working on the show’s score.
One of the world’s most notorious bounty hunters is back. Duane “Dog” Chapman returns to the small screen for season 8 of his reality TV show January 4th.
Thirty-one year-old Kamuela Kahoano has been hard at work putting together the score for the series.
“It’s a ton of work but I love it and I am able to do it exclusively at this point in my life,” said Kamuela Kahoano, musician and composer.
The Iolani High and University of Hawaii graduate comes from a musically gifted family. His father is well known entertainer and local personality Kimo Kahoano. Brother, Ikaika, had a stint in the national spotlight cast on the show Making the Band and as one of the original members of boy band O-Town.
“He went out and he was the first of the Kahoano’s to break the Hawaii barrier,” said Kamuela Kahoano.”So I’ve been for years just working on my craft.”
The youngest of three boys Kamuela plays guitar, ukulele, bass and so many other instruments he can’t name them all.
“I studied ethnomusicology at U.H. as well as all the symphony instruments so I can do it, if I can hear it,” said Kamuela Kahoana.
The Na Hoku Hanohano award winner says the national exposure and opportunity to work with the Chapman’s is a vehicle toward increasing his and Hawaiian music’s popularity abroad.
“I am counting my blessings on that one cause that’s what you call opportunity knocking,” Kamuela Kahoana.
Hundreds of other local artists are also being considered for additional segments on the show.
Kamuela’s score and instrumental compositions will also be recorded on his new cd due out next week. (Khon2.com)
