They sang around the camp fire, roped cattle and rode the range. They were native Hawaiian and many were part Spanish, learning the secrets of traditional vaquero. Enriched by the unique mix of cultures, the Paniolo O Hawaii (Cowboys of Hawaii) produced a language, dress and music that continue to intrigue generations.
Today, these rich traditions are kept alive in the rhythm and harmonies of their ukulele, guitars and melodies carried by the voices of the current Paniolo O Hawaii. This CD is a rare collection of authentic Hawaiian cowboy songs and hula.
