Margaret V Your Favorite Hawaiian Songs (60* d) RE: Your Favorite Hawaiian Songs 04 Oct 01

Okay, I guess he counts more as pop than folk but I have an interesting album called "Facing Future" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. He plays ukelele but the album is a mixture of regular-sounding fare (you might want to listen to/learn a very pretty song called Kuhio Bay -- it has a great melody, sort of yodel-ish) and more unusual stuff. The main reason to listen to the album, I think, is his song Hawaii '78. His voice is beautiful, ethereal, floating over strings and very delicate uke. Hard to explain, and probably not to everyone's liking... have fun. Margaret
