Dennis David Kahekilimamaoikalanikeha Kamakahi was one of Hawai`i's most prolific and popular songwriters. He was also a warm, evocative singer and a gifted guitarist firmly committed to the ki ho`alu (slack key) tradition.
Dennis was born March 31, 1953, in Honolulu, before cable TV and video games. He considered this a blessing and cited it as an important factor in his musical development. "After dinner," Dennis recalled, "our family and neighbors would come outside on our porches, play music and talk story. You didn't have TV, you had each other. The last thing you'd hear at night was music lulling you to sleep."
