Album Notes

HANA BY THE SEA --

Pekelo was born and raised in Hana, on the island of Maui, where at the age of five, he was inspired by the kiho`alu guitar style of Albert Kapunanui. When he was 10, Pekelo saw the great Gabby Pahinui, and Eddie Kamae of the popular Sons of Hawai`i performing. Their music left a deep impression on him.

Pekelo plays all his music in kiho`alu -- slack-key guitar -- and is a master falsetto singer, a composer, arranger, lecturer-story teller, and teacher of `ukulele and guitar. He founded and taught the Maui Youth Slack-Key Project, which was funded by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to perpetuate kiho`alu among teenagers.
