Album Notes

George Kainapau is remembered as one of Hawai`i's greatest falsetto singers. His strong, controlled and clear voice, could glide smoothly from falsetto to high tenor without a break, and use the ha`i technique easily.

His ability to sing in G above a middle C is sometimes referred to as a high falsetto. His appearances in a string of Hollywood films brought this type of singing to the attention of a worldwide audience, spawning scores of falsetto singers outside of Hawai`i.

For the first time since 1957 and beautifully restored, Cord International has released George Kainapau and his Island Serenaders, live from the Ale Ale Kai Room at the Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel
