Three of today's most celebrated traditional Hawaiian musicians and a hot young 'ukulele player come together in the spirit of aloha on this first group recording in the Dancing Cat Slack Key Masters Series. The warm, spontaneous pana'i like (give and take) creates the feeling and perpetuates the legacy of legendary masters of slack key guitar. Featuring four new Dennis Kamakahi originals and eleven standards, Hui Aloha's debut album is truly a musical meeting of love.
