The Hawaiian Slack Key ambassador, Raymond Kane performs in the old, nahenahe (smooth, soft and gentle) style he learned as a child in the 1930s. On his long-awaited second album for Dancing Cat, he shares fourteen originals and standards, including instrumental solos and beautiful vocal duets with his wife Elodia. This is timeless Hawaiian music played from the heart.
Ki ho’alu (pronounced kee-ho-ah-loo) is the Hawaiian name for Slack Key, the finger-style guitar tradition unique to Hawaii. The development of Slack Key began with the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys) in the early 1800s. This tradition is characterized by a variety of tunings and the wealth of deep feelings each artist brings to the music.
