Eddie Kamae was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1927 and has spent all of his life in the Hawaiian Islands. Although Eddie did not graduate from high school, he has gone on to distinguish himself as a singer, a musician, a composer, and more recently, as a filmmaker. He has been a key figure in the Hawaiian cultural renaissance, which found one of its earliest and strongest voices in The Sons of Hawai‘i, the charismatic band formed in the 1960s by Kamae and the legendary singer and guitar virtuoso, Gabby Pahinui. This band became known for the authenticity of its feeling and choice of songs, many of which were a result of Kamae’s research into the archives of long-neglected melodies and lyrics. He is recognized as the first well-known performer to systematically seek out the sources and origins of traditional Hawaiian music.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 12:47:47 PM Pacific/Honolulu

Lorna Lim Shares Inspiration for New Album with HPR's Derrick Malama

"Vocalist Lorna Lim is back with her first solo album in over a decade. It's called Polinahe, which means "soft and sweet music from the heart." Lim and her husband Wailau Ryder recently visited our studios, where HPR's Derrick Malama asked her about what inspired the sound her new album."

Lorna Lim’s beautiful voice, her deep knowledge of hula, and her connection to the Big Island’s music tradition place her among Hawaii’s living treasures. Born and raised in the North Kohala district on the Big Island, she began playing music at an early age with her siblings and parents, an award-winning family musical group known throughout Hawaii simply as ‘The Lim Family’. Her sister Nani is one of Hawaii’s most renowned Hula teachers, and her Grammy nominated brother, Sonny, is one of Hawaii’s top slack key guitar players. Lorna’s performances have taken her throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.

Lorna recorded “Polinahe” for hula dancers, in a style that reflects her personal musical tradition.  The translation of the title - “poli”, meaning from the heart, and “nahe”, meaning sweet and pure - sums up Lorna’s musical style and the beautiful quality of her voice.

Jeff Peterson, music with Riley Lee

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 12:19:17 PM Pacific/Honolulu

A short interview with Derrick Malama on HPR

"Jeff Peterson recently brought his slack key guitar to our studios where HPR's Derrick Malama asked him about the first concert with shakuhachi Grandmaster Riley Lee." 

LISTEN NOW

Haleakala-€œ is the fourth collaboration between kiho`œalu (slack key) guitarist and GRAMMY® winner Jeff Peterson and internationally famous shakuhachi Grand Master Riley Lee. Like their best selling CD, Maui Morning, the Valley Isle of Maui inspired this recording. The shakuhachi (bamboo flute) is ideally suited to Hawaiian music, with its ability to play the soft melodies and rich harmonies, and the slides, bends, and other ornaments, with an expressive quality rivaled only by the human voice. Featuring refreshing interpretations of many of the most celebrated songs from Hawai`œi, Haleakala-€œalso includes four original pieces inspired by the beauty and majesty of the Haleakala-€œ Mountain and the Haleakala-€œ Crater. Haleakala-€œ's soothing nahenahe (sweet) music calms the spirit and invigorates the soul.
