Hawaiian Rainbow

1987, Other
This documentary traces the rich history of Hawaiian music, beginning with its roots, long before Capt. James Cook's arrival in 1778 and the introduction of Western influence. Esteemed Hawaiian musicologist George Kanahele discusses the main genres and techniques of modern Hawaiian music -- including falsetto and slack key guitar -- and analyzes their development and influence and the unique combinations of instruments and traditions acquired through contact with foreign cultures.
