Album Notes

This compilation -- taken from earlier recordings -- features 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!

Leo k`ieki`e (Hawaiian falsetto) is a form of musical expression unique to the islands of Hawai`i. 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 its 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.
