We return to the decade of the 1970s, the period of Hawaiian music often referred to as The Hawaiian Renaissance, when Hawaii’s youth began a search for ethnic identity.
The return to grassroots music was led by traditionally influenced musicians such as Gabby Pahinui, the Sons of Hawaii, the Sunday Manoa, and Hui Ohana.
But there were many other performers as well, whose recordings are now out of print.
Today, we’ll listen to more of our out-of-print recordings from the recorded legacy of the Hawaiian Renaissance.
