Description

For twenty years Eddie Kamae’s legendary band, The Sons of Hawai’i played a leading role in the Hawaiian Cultural Renaissance. Kamae himself has become a folk hero, known for his instrumental genius and for a vigorous singing style that carried the spirit of an ancient vocal tradition into the late 20th century. This year he started sitting in with four featured performers who share his spirit and musicianship: guitarist Mike Ka’awa, bass player and guitarist Ocean Kaowili, bass player Analu Aina, and guitartist Braddah Smitty. Translated from Hawaiian, Ho’omau means to continue. Hear their songs and their humor, their reminiscences, and witness a devotion to a sound that continues the great legacy of Eddie Kamae and The Sons of Hawai’i.
