this son of a Ni’ihau mother returned to Ni’ihau to spend the first five years
of his life with his Tutu Kane, his Grandfather. In 1964 he returned to Oahu
to join his immediate family then on to Makaha on the Waianae Coast where
Israel was to learn the importance of his Hawaiian heritage and discover the
richness and mystique in the music and culture of his islands. With an
ukulele, his constant companion, Israel would sing and play for anyone who
listened. The texture of his voice, the songs and the sound of his resonant
ukulele constantly create the feeling that a new, musical Hawaii is emerging.
Yet, the basics of his musical inventions remain embedded in the rich, warm,
musical soil of his Ni’ihau and Makaha Kapunas. BAND_MEMBERS: Israel
