This concert video includes Hawaiian slack key guitar (ki ho'alu) master Ledward Kaapana performing solo on many instruments (including: 6 string, autoharp and ukulele), Led is then joined by National Steel guitar king Bob Brozman. Together the two perform songs ranging from Hawaiian standards to slack key favorites. Led's full-bodied fingerpicking covers the melody and rhythm while Bob's amazing slide work (he plays a National, Koa wood Weissenborn acoustic steel and ukulele), provides the textural accents and coloration his instrument has traditionally provided in Hawaiian music. This ground-breaking collaboration brings together two stellar musicians from different cultures, who share their aloha for vintage Hawaiian music and have good fun doing it. Running time: 90 minutes.
