Cyril Pahinui (1950-2018)

“Daddy, Atta Isaacs, and Sonny Chillingworth were the greatest guitarists in my life and I was so happy to learn from them. When I play music I always think of my Dad, Atta and Sonny. I’m so thankful for what I learned from them in my younger days. When I play music or teach, I am just sharing with others what I learned from them.
” -Cyril Pahinui

HE’EIA is Cyril’s third solo album for Dancing Cat, following 6 & 12 STRING SLACK KEY, and NIGHT MOON (PO MAHINA), and a fourth volume is planned. He has also recorded FOUR HANDS SWEET & HOT for Dancing Cat, an album of pure duets on Slack Key guitar with acoustic steel guitar master Bob Brozman.
