The Descendents soundtrack

Here’s a great story from earlier this year about The Descendents soundtrack and how it featured “Real” Hawaiian music, including songs from great Hawaiian music talents like Gabby Pahinui, Keola Beamer, Jeff Peterson, and more!

Also, if you saw the movie (or plan to watch it still), Mountain Apple’s Anthony Natividad also has a song featured during the film!

You can also listen to the audio version that was on NPR! http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2012/01/08/144804932/soundtracking-the-descendants-with-real-hawaiian-music
