"Kahauanu Lake is the grandfather of traditional hawaiian music in the modern era, who traces his ancestry to Kamehameha I. Although he acknowledges the need to have hapa-haole commercial hits (hawaiian songs in english; think Elvis) to welcome the uninitiated into the genre; he does not compromise authenticity in his songs many of which he wrote himself.
This cd was selected as one of Hawaii's Top 50 cds by Honolulu magazine, deservedly so. Spanning his continuing career of over 50 years, his voice is smooth, soulful and sincere; the backup is intentionally understated, just a humble satisfying warm feeling of aloha.
If you are going to get a Hawaiian CD this is it."
