HAWAIIAN MUSIC & MUSICIANS - AN ENCYCLOPEDIC HISTORY BOOK
Dr. George S Kanahele & John Berger - 6" X 9" - 926 pages -Black & White Photographs & Illustrations - Softcover
When George S. Kanahele founded the Hawaiian Music Foundation in 1971 he immediately saw the need for a systematic presentation of the whole tradition of Hawaiian music, from its origins in pre-contact chant and hula, to the adaptation of other musical traditions and instruments, to the extraordinary spread of Hawaiian music as “world music,” and finally to the Hawaiian Renaissance that saved the tradition from near-extinction.
Compiled with the assistance of a hundred contributors and the research of many more, it was immediately recognized as the most ambitious book ever written about Hawaiian music.
Organized like an encyclopedia, with entries in alphabetical order, the book presents the roots of Hawaiian music, from ancient chants to the flowering of the musical renaissance. There are biographies of musicians from every period of Hawaiian musical history—from Henry Berger, David Kālakaua, Queen Lili‘uokalani, and others of their time, to the great names of the 20th century. A special section presents many rare photographs of historical interest, featuring singers, chanters, dancers, and instrumentalists. Melody lines, chants, and rhythm patterns are illustrated by music notation.
This revised and updated edition is the indispensable go-to guide to the galaxy of Hawaiian music.

HOW SIX LITTLE IPU GOT THEIR NAMES BOOK - SALE
Our Price: $10.50
Sale Price: $8.00
D. Brimmer, J. Coleson
8-1/2" x 11"- color illustrations - 32 pages - Hardcover - Audio CD
This book is an imaginative look into the life story of a hula implement. Separated from their vines at a tender age, the little gourds are taken to the home of a local implement maker. There they meet Uncle Ka Leo, a grand and grumpy ipu heke, who gives them tantalizing glimpses of what they someday may become. Even though the little gourds are frightened and insecure, sticking together gives them the courage that carries them safely through their many adventures. While one of the little gourds is constantly worried that his imperfection will be his downfall, it turns out in the end (as it does for many of us) that his imperfection is what makes him special and unique. As the hula students learn about their new implements, the little gourds learn about themselves as well. Once each girl finds the ipu hula they feel is really, really theirs, the little gourds find that they too have re-captured their long-lost feelings of "being connected." In spite of life's uncertainties and insecurities, this story reminds us all that happy endings are possible, even in the most unexpected of places.
