James 'Bla' Pahinui
Mana
Bla is the second-oldest son of Hawaiian music and slack key legend Gabby "Pops" Pahinui. As a former member of the Sunday Manoa, The Gabby Band and the Pahinui Brothers, Bla perpetuates his family's heartfelt commitment to Hawaiian music. On this, his first solo slack key recording, Bla draws upon mana (spiritual power of soul), when performing his original instrumentals, unique interpretations of Hawaiian favorites, and Mainland oldies.
