History of the Sons of Hawai`i - DVD
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Some of the leading voices of the Hawaiian cultural renaissance, which began in the early 1960s, were musicians and singers. Their songs carried feelings that were yearning to be expressed throughout the island chain.
Among the most influential groups of that era were Eddie Kamae & The Sons of Hawai`i. The group was led by Eddie Kamae -- already famous for his `ukulele styling -- and by the great vocalist and slack key guitar virtuoso, Gabby Pahinui. They were joined by bassist Joe Marshall and the brilliant young steel guitarist, David "Feet" Rogers.
This 80 minute DVD tells the story of a charismatic band. Spanning forty years of Hawaii's rich musical tradition, the film offers an intimate look at a unique group of performers and composers...their songs, their humor, their devotion to a sound that continues to convey something essential about the Hawaiian spirit.
All sale proceeds go to The Hawaiian Legacy Foundation -- whose mission is to document, preserve, and perpetuate the cultural heritage of Hawai`i through film and video, education programs, community outreach, and archival work.
