This guy is true Hawai'i.

After spending a few days in the shadow of Mauna Kea I found this song by him and decided to do my own version of it on uke this afternoon. Here's a one take offering I hope you enjoy.

We'll work it up better for the next CD; but for now - I think you can feel the essence of a terrific song written for the slack key guitar about an amazing place on earth and fitting nicely with a simple vocal and tenor uke.

The Brothers Cazemiero did the song as well.
A nice version.
But Keola's original on his CD "Slack Key In The Real Old Style" is so elemental and very moving.

Thanks Pablus brings back memories of meeting you at Vic's.

Man, we're so glad to have a copy of you singing this.
