In 1984, Lehua Records released an album produced by Jerry Byrd called, “He IS Hawaiian Music”, featuring Benny Kalama.
Benny Kalama, the extraordinary falsetto singer, arranger, and musician, who had made so many other Hawaiian music stars great, was coaxed into making a solo recording.
He was backed on this recording by Hiram Olsen on rhythm guitar, Kalani Fernandes on bass, Randy Oness on ukulele, and Alan Akaka on steel guitar.
