Those Who Came Before tells the story of a young Hawaiian `ukulele virtuoso’s journey of musical self-discovery and how it turned into a 50-year pursuit of Hawaiian cultural and musical traditions. The documentary pays tribute to the music of Hawaiians whose gifts of knowledge helped guide Eddie Kamae. His pursuit led him to some of the most respected gatekeepers of the Hawaiian Renaissance: the great author and translator Mary Kawena Pukui, the “Songwriter of Waipi’o” Sam Li’a, “Aloha Chant” author Pilahi Paki, and Hawaiian cultural resource Lilia “Mama” Hale. One by one, they entrusted him with key pieces of Hawaii’s musical heritage – inspiring him to understand, perform, and pass that heritage on to the children of Hawai`i. Those Who Came Before: The Musical Journey of Eddie Kamae, is the 10th documentary from Eddie and Myrna Kamae’s celebrated and multiple award- winning Hawaiian Legacy Series.
