I am really surprised that RP hasn't given any recognition to this recent event, or I completely missed it: nytimes.com/2018/12/01/obituaries/cyril-pahinui-dead.html

Just got back from Hawaii and I was caught by surprise when I heard this.
Fabulous  : )
Another time, another place, another life! Man, this makes me miss it all so much... You gotta live it to appreciate it, and once it's no longer there..? You live the moments over and over... rippin the surf then chillin with the brew and tunes... yeah, that's LIFE!
Very relaxing Now I need a good Haka to get ready for work

I'd like a fruity cocktail served in a pineaple with an umbrella please, wait... make that 4. :cheers:
Meh.
Makes me wish I was back on Hawaii!!
Great to hear the Hawai'ian sound. Only usually get to hear it on the islands. Keep it going!
Haven\'t heard this type of music since I was in Maui a few yrs ago. Don\'t forget his late father, Gabby Pahinui, king of the slack key guitar..

Great! Send it in to Bill and Rebecca and see if they like it too.
Not sure what all he\'s saying, but I hear Kamakawiwo\'ole in there, which was Israel\'s last name--as well as the last name of a whole extended family of musicians.

Votes are weighted. Have dodgy musical taste and your vote is adjusted. Either that or someone voted low around the same time that you voted.
