Ki Ho'alu Christmas: Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar

4.0 1
 
The rich, resonant sound of slack key guitar lends itself remarkably well to Christmas music, and fans of Dancing Cat's slack key series will be pleased with this collection. Rev. Dennis Kamakahi's sentimental "Christmas Memories" is oversweet even for the holidays, but musically it's gorgeous, as are most of the other tracks.

Ki Ho'alu Christmas: Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This is a nice album. I particularly liked the version of "Silent Night" sung in Hawaiian. I waited a couple of decades to buy it, but I'm glad that I did. I hope to try the second one before too many more years elapse.
