The Lim Family - Launa'ole - unequalled
This selection of music from the very talented Lim Family offers many wonderful songs with a beat and harmony unequalled as the title suggests. This group knows how to sing! The slack key, ukulele and other instruments masterfully compliment the harmonious voices and the cd brings you the talents you know and remember.
This cd Launa'ole - unequalled also features the late Elmer St. who played rhythm guitar. With the passing of this legendary musician and family man the family has pulled together and are still offering the world what can only be described as hall of fame work in the making. Families for generations will remember the Lim Family when thinking about Hawaiian music!

When the family was first noted by the music world as a huge talent was 1978 at a talent search contest at the famous Kona Inn in Hawaii. They had already become a favorite with islanders of the Big Island. Today this award winning family still plays and has brought us more music and has been a most popular requested act for several years.
This is definitely a group I would recommend for any Hawaiian music library. It is music with a swing and style to it that will have you swaying to the beat! Below are some links to amazon.com where you can order this wonderful selection and more of their music.
