Album Notes

WINDWARD HEART collects live solo performances by James "Bla" Pahinui. "Most of it was done totally out of the blue", Bla says. "There was no set list, no planning, I didn't even know I was being recorded, I was just having fun." Born in 1942 to the late slack key guitar legend Gabby Pahinui (founder of the modern slack key era) and the late Emily Pahinui, Bla was raised in Waimanalo, on O`ahu's picturesque windward side. Bla is one of the most individualistic Hawaiian musicians of his generation.
