“In Shades of Green,” a new CD with Hawaiian music and Celtic influences, has close ties to our Kauai vacation rentals. The vocalist, musician and composer is the talented Madeleine Brandli who owns House of The Cherished Seacoast managed by Parrish Kauai.
If you watched our Kauai wedding video you heard Madeleine’s beautiful voice in the background. You can also listen to her original compositions on the Madeleine Brandli website where copies of her CD are available for purchase.
Madeleine’s poetic music “celebrates the beauty of the Earth, the wisdom of world traditions and the deep connections we share with those we love, whether for a moment or a lifetime.”
I’m inspired each time I listen and reminded of the joy her warm and uplifting personality exudes.
Madeleine was on island last week to compete in the Kauai Mokihana Festival and is studying slack key guitar with Keola Beamer. She also plays harp, piano and ukulele. Add to that a soprano voice that can “sing the curtains off of Carnegie Hall,” and you have a truly gifted renaissance woman.
House of the Cherished Seacoast “Hale Kahakai Punahele”
Madeleine and her late husband Warren, purchased the lot to build their home after Hurricane Iniki. Longtime visitors to Kauai since 1970, they were original owners at Manualoha.
House of the Cherished Seacoast received a Hawaiian blessing in 1997 to the release of butterflies and Madeleine performing one of her first songs. Many family celebrations have been held here including their 30th wedding anniversary. Madeleine and her daughter Christina now divide their time between California and Kauai.
Guests who stay at this charming Poipu vacation rental have a spectacular oceanfront setting to enjoy the unobstructed views across from Brennecke’s Beach.
We look forward to sharing more stories with you about the homes and owners who are part of The Parrish Collection Kauai.
