Drenched By Music


Dancing Cat Records has produced this wonderful disc of Hawaiian slack key guitar solo instrumentals, mixed with some lovely vocals. This disc is a must for any fan of Hawaiian slack key guitar music, or just beautiful, heartfelt music.



George Kahumoku Jr.’s Drenched by Music is one of the company’s most listenable new releases. Kahumoku pulls a cascade of rich, full sounds from his 12-string guitar and, joined by Aunty Diana Aki and acoustic steel guitarist Bill Brozman, makes you feel as if you’ve come over for a backyard luau –Dewey Schurman – islands.com


On his first Dancing Cat recording, George plays the 12-string guitar in his very own unique Kahumoku family style. George is an accomplished composer, slack key guitarist and teacher of Hawaiian music and culture. This CD also features a duet with renowned vocalist Diana Aki, as well as an up-tempo swinging duet with acoustic steel guitarist Bob Brozman.
