The Hawaiian Son

Fans of Eddie Kamae on his biography, Hawaiian Son: The Life and Music of Eddie Kamae

“I was so touched by it. It brought memories that had been dormant for years; warm memories. … You see, we’re originally from Waimanalo & my big tita had worked for Aunty Nani when it was then called just Nani’s & knew her & her family well. I on the other hand went to school with Cyril Pahinui. All in all, you gave both of us a wonderful trip in time, reawakening moments of the life then, when life was simply grass roots. Mahalo nui loa from the bottom of my heart.”

“I started the Hawaiian Son & felt I was on the journey w/Eddie. It truly is a marvelous legacy he has given the people of Hawaii, both Malahinis and Kamaianas. When he spoke of Anake Mabel & Anake Nani, it brought back endearing memories of them both. His cup runneth over. There are so many common threads of our lives that directs us to “stop, look, and listen” to the stories of old Hawaii Nae and bring to it the spirit and music of that place in time.”
