Facing Future

You may have never  heard of Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (known as "Brudda IZ" to Hawaiian locals), but chances are you've heard some of his music featured in a recent movie or TV show. Best known is his rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, a highlight of his Facing Future album. But the rest of his music is just as fantastic and well worth checking out! The album is a mix of Hawaiian language songs and those sung in English. With only a few exceptions, most songs are enhansed only by ukulele and some light percussion. A total departure from the overly-produced music that's flooding on todays Billbord's charts. No matter your taste, you'll enjoy this! Check it out today! --AJL
