Masters of Hawaiian Music 2015

Posted by David Barry (Creator)

Aloha everyone,

Last year, together with the help of 500 of you, Uncle George and I were able to make two great films on Richard Ho'opi'i and Dennis Kamakahi.  The response to the films has been overwhelmingly positive, and I am so pleased that you all liked the work we did.  The experience of raising the funds, being backed by so many people was also very humbling for both uncle George and I, and we both thank you!

I am asking you all to consider helping Uncle George and I again this year, as we turn our focus to two more Masters of Hawaiian Music, Brother Noland and Martin Pahinui.  Please take a look at our Kickstarter page for those films at:  

Once again thank you all for helping us to make our films in 2015, and as they continue to make their way to PBS broadcast and other distribution venues I will keep you all posted.
