CD Reviews

Terrific way to escape to the islands!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While visiting the Hawaiian islands, I have become very fond of the Hawaiian music and a certain style of singing, that I didn't know what to call. I hurt my knee in Hawaii and upon returning home to Seattle, had to have knee surgery. When I woke up in the recovery room, I heard this wonderful Hawaiian music and thought I was dreaming about being back in Hawaii. I asked the nurse where the music was coming from and she said she'd just been to the islands and had brought this CD home. She wrote down the title for me and it was Pua'ena by Dennis Kamakahi. I ordered it right away from and have loved listening to this music regularly. It puts me back in paradise; when I'm having a bad day I put it my Pua'ena CD and escape to the islands. Dennis has such a beautiful voice and his soft tenderness in singing about the place he loves and the wife he loves - it's really wonderful."
One of the great song writers of Hawaii!

"Dennis Kamakahi is probably the greatest Hawaiian song-writer alive today. In addition, he has a marvelous rich voice and is a master of the ki ho'alu (slack key for you malihinis out there) guitar. In this CD he plays a lot of his own songs and some traditional favorites as well. Kamakahi has learned from the greats, including Gabby Pahinui, and you can hear the Gabby influence in such songs as "Ipo Lei Manu". Kamakahi's vocal virtuosity is beautifully displayed in "Ahulili" and "Apapane". For anyone who loves real Hawaiian music, this CD is a must-have."
I know I have a soul because The Rev's voice touches it.

"Skillful guitar plus a pure voice! This CD is my cure for road rage--puts me in that "hang loose" kind of attitude. Liner notes have stories about each song plus which key he plays it in, but no translations."
