These are beautiful recordings of classic Hula songs played and sung by Slack Key guitar master George Kahumoku. He is accompanied wonderfully on sparkling ukulele by Daniel Ho. This is true and deep Hawaiian music, and there is an abundance of sweet songs, as well as many other moods.

- George Winston

Excerpt from the liner notes...

George Kahumoku, Jr. has traveled the world sharing his music. He has met thousands of Hawaiians and Hawaiian at heart who perpetuate and participate in Hawaiian Culture through hula dancing or singing wherever they may live. This album is dedicated to you the keepers of the Hawaiian Mele and Hula.

The hula has been in George's family for six generations. His father, George Kahumoku, Sr., was named after his uncle, Kuluwaimoka, Kalakaua's court chanter for Hula. George's Tutu, Emily Hoopale, and aunt Iolani Makekau Luahine were both taught hula by Antone Kaoo, another Kumu Hula who danced for King David Kalakaua.
