Musical Instrument Museum - MIM says
This holiday season, three award-winning music masters from Hawaii, who are also ordained kahu (minister, in Hawaiian language), share their deep love of their native hymn traditions. These himeni (songs) are distinctly Hawaiian, yet draw from some familiar church songs, many of which George Kahumoku Jr. learned as a young boy at the kitchen table with his parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins.

Kahumoku is a four-time GRAMMY winner and multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano (equivalent to Hawaii’s GRAMMY) awardee. A master slack-key guitarist, he is also known as “Hawai’i’s Renaissance Man”—musician, vocalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher, sculptor, farmer, and chef.

Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i, a National Heritage Fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), is renowned for his ukulele and leo ki’eki’e (traditional Hawaiian falsetto singing) talents. He has a unique yodeling style and a delightful and engaging stage presence.

Slack-key guitarist Kawika Kahiapo won three Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards in 2015: for Slack-Key Album of the Year, for Island Music Album of the Year, and for Hawaiian-Language Performance as an artist. A regular at Jack Johnson’s Kōkua Festivals, Kahiapo has slack-key roots and a commitment to Hawaiian culture that run deep.
