Cyril Pahinui’s Kani Pu Kolu (January 2014) skillfully combines Hawai‘i’s favorite stringed instruments ukulele, kī hō‘alu (slack key) and steel guitars in this brilliantly arranged collection that once more redefines and expands the boundaries of Hawaiian music. The unmatched qualities of Hawaiian style jazz create a superbly innovative yet vintage sound that is unquestionably faithful to its traditional Hawaiian musical roots. The inventive composition of intricate rhythms and complex pā‘āni characterize the distinctive Pahinui style that appeals to almost everyone who hears it. Almost without comparison, Cyril Pahinui has enjoyed a phenomenal career in Hawaiian music and the first-rate musicianship, tight arrangements and hot licks showcase his expertise and confirm his impact on a new generation of Hawaiian musicians.
