ManoaDNA's third full U.S. release, EVOLUTION (2010):
"Over the years, ManoaDNA has looked to its kupuna for wisdom, turned to contemporaries for advice and challenged each other from within. To this mix they now add the magical ingredient of experience. Their music is fueled with new inspirations. Their presentation, once a breath of fresh air sprinkled with beautiful harmonies, takes on a polished patina."
