Album NotesOn his first solo slack key album, Moses Kahumoku presents brillant and poignant original songs and powerful interpretations of Hawaiian classics.
A pillar of Big Island slack key, Moses Kahumoku is well known as a musician, farmer, fisherman and activist struggling to help protect the `aina (land) and working for Hawaiian sovereignty through his association with the Aloha `Aina organization and other groups. He is also well known outside of his home island for his performances and recordings with his brother George as The Kahumoku Brothers. "My brother George is the best 12 string slack key guitarist I've ever had the honor of playing with", Moses says proudly.
A powerful improviser, gifted composer and interpreter, Moses Kahumoku was born in 1953 in Honolulu, and was raised in Keaukaha on the Big Island. Moses began playing music around the age of five, and like most ki ho`alu (slack key) masters, he looked first to his family for his source.
