Synopsis

Amazon.com
As the 9th of Gabby Pahinui's 10 children, Cyril hails from the first family of slack key. He's known for his percussive sound, which he creates by dampening the strings with his right hand, but the jaunty, delicate melodies and improvisations he places between the beats are just as impressive. He can stretch out effortlessly from the traditional to the progressive, sometimes even in the same song, and he's also one of the genre's most emotive vocalists, particularly in the Hawaiian falsetto style. This solo album offers a strong mix of traditional and improvised-in-the-studio songs. --John Morthland

"cyril pahinui, the son of the late slack key guitar legend gabby pahinui, is one of the finest slack key guitarists in the world! on the album, issued by george winston's "dancing cat records," pahinui demonstrates some of the most unbelievable guitar playing i've ever heard!i had the great fortune of seeing him in concert and spoke briefly with him afterwards. a gentle warrior, pahinui truly exhudes the spirit of aloha in his skillful playing and soothing voice --not a dry eye in the house!if you're looking for gentle music to take you away to a tropical isle, consider pahinui's albums. this is a wonderful introduction to the fine art of hawaiian slack key guitar. this is a cd that is in constant rotation on my player--and one that i listen to almost every night upon returning from work in order to relax and let go of the tensions of the day..."

"Lovely solo explorations by a son of Hawaiian slack key legend Gabby Pahinui... This is delicate, innovative modern acoustic music. Absolutely gorgeous & well worth checking out."
