Album NotesWith these vintage recordings now available on CD, The Kalima Brothers & the Richard Kauhi Quartette will transport you back in time to the late 1940s, where -- at the edge of Waikiki -- the `ukulele and the piano were combined to ignite a Hawaiian music revolution. The Kalima Brothers became a smash hit in post-war Honolulu. Their rambunctious sound featured solid multi-part harmonies, embellished with intricate `ukulele, piano, and steel guitar solos -- all propelled by a rollicking katchi-katchi dance beat.
By the summer of 1948, a new musical rage hit Honolulu in the form of the Richard Kauhi Quartette. Their hybrid jazzy sound featured flawless four-part vocals driven by intricate piano arrangements. These are legendary Hawaiian musicians.
