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.

Phillip S. Roberts - 7" x 5" - 265 pages - color photos - Hardcover
     This contemporary landscape-styled book offers a pictorial documentation of the past and present of tiki (and related art forms) throughout Waikiki as well as Hawaii's island of Oahu.  This book displays original photographs that document the tiki art culture scene that blossomed after WWII through its modern forms today.  A great many of the images captured in these pages no longer exist in real life.  Much of the ephemera and archival material pictured reside only in the author's private collection.  Filled with color photos on every page.
     "Waikiki Tiki is a fascinating and richly illustrated portrait of how the new incarnation of tiki---forever changed by its appropriation into mainland pop culture--has triumphantly returned to its homeland to inspire, entertain, and educate generations of kama'aina and haole alike." James Teitelbaum
