2001 Anthology of the Year! Received the prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Award from the Hawaiian Academy of Recording Arts. Hawaiian Falsetto singing is a form of musical expression unique to the islands of Hawaii. There is no other style of singing that brings with it such intense tropical passion and raw power. A truly great Hawaiian falsetto singer is able to sustain a lofty note to it’s outer limits, grab a split second gasp of air, soar to an even higher register, and then dance in that rare air with the utmost control and grace. Passion, romance, control, and power all combine to define the best of the Hawaiian Falsetto Singers. This is a careful compilation featuring a stunning variety of Hawaii’s legendary falsetto singers, each recorded in their prime over 50 years ago. 22 classic recordings by 22 different legendary performers! 11 men & 11 women: Bill Ali’iloa Lincoln, Lena Machado, Joe Keawe, Genoa Keawe, George Kainapau, Nora Keahi Santos, Benny Kalama, Linda Dela Cruz, Gabby Pahinui, Myrtle K. Hilo, Andy Cummings, Flora Waipa, George Pokini, Agnes Malabey, John Pi’ilani Watkins, Sally Kahoiwai Peters, John Keawehawaii, Tina Ka’apana, David Kaho’onei, Dorothy Kalima, Kai Davis & Mabel Kekino. This wonderful presentation is a must for the collections of both the young aspiring falsetto singer, and the Hawaiian falsetto fan.
