Kanaka‘ole, Aunty Edith – Hi‘ipoe I Ka ‘Āina Aloha Cherish The Beloved Land – Used LP
VG/VG (some crackle)
gatefold w/ lyrics.
unique and enjoyable set from 1979, Aunty Edith Kanaka‘ole age 66 at the time, chanting, singing, talking, playing guitar, backed with bass, guitars, ukulele, ipu (gourd drum), stone castanets, and pu'uli (split bamboo stave), electric bassline wonderful with the acoustic instruments, Aunty Edith's unique vocals often in the spotlight but sometimes dropping out to let the rhythms walk over bridges. -- winch (green noise)
