Premiere Viewing presented by Kauai Historical Society and Bamboo Moon Video:
"Preserving Kauai Backyard Music, Volume 2" Documentary on Kauai Musicians

Featured are Mama Ane Kanahele, Ileialoha Beniamina and the Kaohelauli'i 'ohana of Niihau,
Victor Punua & Sons, the Kamaainas with Ambrose Smith, David Sproat, Gabby Manintin, Edward Punua; Uncle Nathan Kalama with Lady Ipo Kahaunaele Ferreira and Maka Herrod.
Live musical performances by Paul Togioka, Pancho Graham, Garret Santos
and emcee Maka Herrod and Lady Ipo

Video screening, luau dinner, silent auction of estate items, resort stays, fine art & more.
DVD's available for purchase
This cute little rooster greeted us at the entry (for my daughter who is raising chickens for eggs). The Luau Pavilion was filled to overflowing with luminaries of Hawaiian music and us common folk. Old friend JB manned the sound board.




Ambrose Smith with the Kamaainas, videographer Dr. Rob Zelkovsky (who gave me adjustments during Byron's birth), and Mama Ane, an old friend from Niihau.

I missed dear Ilei Beniamina who did not attend but Mama Ane performed with the ohana.



Mayor Carvalho and his lovely wife dropped by; silent auction items included a koa ukulele signed by Aunty Genoa, and the food was plentiful and delicious!
The Kamaainas performed, and then Aunty Kuulei Punua (my daughter's kumu hula) watched while husband Victor and the offspring carried on their beautiful tradition of Hawaiian music - inspiring impromptu hula in the real kanikapila style!



It was a night for memories. And when the video was played- I was taken back in time to the Kauai Surf days of the 70's in an instant. It is entered in the Hawaii Film Festival. I hope you will get a chance to see it yourselves some day!

Glad you had a good time, Liz. But I rarely listen to Hawaiian music at home.

How nice of you to post these photos from that fun event, Liz. As soon as I saw the photo of the food, I had to laugh -- we were the ones seated across from you Saturday night. I play lots of these wonderful old mele on my radio shows at KKCR. Tune in any Thu or Fri (7-9am).

Hi Auntie Maria! It was a delight and the food was very good - I always share the food pix so people can "feel" the event :-)
I will make it a point to tune in to your show now. I usually pule on the way to work as I'm driving... and think of all who are in need of healing and extra care. I'll remember to listen on Thu and Fri!

Aloha Liz - mahalo for this wonderful recap of the evening and great seeing you there. For me, watching the musicians watching the film was the best part, especially when they were watching the other musicians tell their stories and paly their nahenahe mele. The Kaua`i Historical Society plans more screenings, one on Sept 23, as part of Mokihana Festival, probably on north shore and one on westside.
The film was also entered into Hawai`i International Film Festival.
