Spanning forty years of Hawai’i’s rich musical tradition, the film offers an intimate look at a unique group of performers and composers: their songs, their humor, their devotions to a sound that continues to convey something essential about the Hawaiian spirit. Master of Hawaiian Chant, Ka’upena Wong stated, “Brother Eddie and The Sons were pioneers in the revival of Hawaiian music. . . their sound had that sincere folk quality to it, it made everyone stand up and take notice.”
