Eddie Kamae will be in Santa Cruz, this Wednesday, October 12th at the Rio Theater at 7:00 to show his new film, "Keepers of the Flame", a profile of three Hawaiian women - Mary Kawena Pukui, 'Iolani Luahini and Edith Kanaka'ole - who were instrumental in saving native Hawaiian culture during a time when it was threatened with annihilation. Eddie is a founding member of the Sons of Hawaii in the 1960s who recorded landmark albums based on many of the teachings of these three women. Eddie will perform with Ocean Kawili for part of the night. My Friend Vern from our local Hawaiian band Huna Wai was asked to play slack key for Eddie. Needless to say Vern is stoked and honored to be given the opportunity.
