Had a great time last week visiting the studio of the Hawaiian Concert Guide, a podcast dedicated to the music and culture of the islands of Hawaii (Hawai'i) - they also help keep everyone informed of concert performances as they occur on the mainland U.S.A. and around the world.

Granddaughter of the late, great Aunty Genoa Keawe, Pomaika'i Keawe Lyman shared some of her favorite songs with us, live, over the internet airwaves and explains what it was like growing up with and learning from her world famous and beloved tutu. The interview was scheduled to help promote the upcoming Aloha Falsetto Festival happening July 18th at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, CA. This will be the 2nd Annual celebration and the only gathering of Hawaiian falsetto (leo ki'eki'e) artists outside of Hawai'i. Pomaika'i is one of the special featured artists in this year's lineup which includes Hawaiian music Grammy winners and nominees all on one stage, plus hula, Hawaiian food, arts and crafts vendors, and more. Honoring one of the world's great ethnomusical traditions, the first-ever "Aloha Falsetto Festival" on the US mainland July 2008 was truly an historic occasion and this year's program will not disappoint. The other artists who will be appearing:
· Richard Ho'opi'i - Two-time Grammy Winner
· Weldon Kekauoha - Most Promising Artist, Favorite Entertainer, Song of the Year
· Leokane Pryor - up and coming singer from Maui
· Kekaimoku Yoshikawa - kumu hula and falsetto singer in Southern California
