NA MELE was conceived and developed at PBS Hawai‘i to preserve the extraordinary music of Hawai‘i in its purest form, live and impromptu, as performed by some of the Islands’ best talents.
Air date: Mon., Dec. 5, 7:30 pm
Cyril Pahinui and Peter Moon Jr.
This special NA MELE presentation pairing Cyril Pahinui and Peter Moon Jr. has a special significance, as both are the sons of Hawaiian music icons: slack key guitar legend Gabby “Pops” Pahinui and Peter Moon Sr., a seminal figure in the Hawaiian Renaissance of the 1970s.
Cyril and Peter Moon Jr.’s master-apprentice process is rooted in the “old style” approach to teaching: watch, listen and learn. That was how Cyril learned from his father, and this technique has borne fruit with Peter Moon Jr. as the two of them, along with special guest Jeff Ahoy on steel guitar, perform in a jam session at the PBS Hawaii studio.
