ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Before telling you about this wonderful album, if you are just trying to contact us, you should scroll down now to the bottom of this page. Otherwise, read on!

Musical instruments commonly heard in the global media today, all started somewhere. The piano is from Italy, the guitar and it's smaller cousin the quatro (later altered and called ukulele in Hawaii) came from Spain. However, once these instruments leave their homeland, they are no longer thought of as the "Spanish guitar, Hawaiian ukulele or the Italian piano." The country of origin is dropped and the instrument is just known by it's own name. However, the steel pan remains associated with the Caribbean because it is fairly young in the world, only about 65 years old, whereas other instruments have been around hundreds of years. Moving pan up to the world stage will require that it travels to, and becomes influenced by, the music of different countries.

Therefore, Junko and I would like to welcome you to Hawaiian-Style Steel Pan, the new sound in Hawaiian music.

In the last few years our intent has been to take the steel pan into different musical areas (Latin, Classical, American Standards, etc.) Now with this, our 7th album, please enjoy the world's first all Hawaiian music to be played on it. Helping us do this are some of Hawaii's best musicians playing Hawaiian Steel Guitar, Slack Key Guitar, Ukulele and Piano.

Junko and I are grateful to our fans all around the world for supporting our brand of music. If you have not joined our email list and wish to, please send your email address to: gmacd@aloha.net. It will not be sold or given to anyone else and is only for the purpose of keeping in touch with future CD's and performances. No spam, we promise. Don't have email, that's ok. Send us your postal mailing address.

If you are coming to Hawaii and would like to find out where we are performing, or how to book us, please email or phone 808-735-6003. Also, please visit our personal web site: steeldrummusichawaii.com

Wonderful Hawaiian Memories
We were in Hawaii 5 years ago and will never forget the magical sounds of beautiful Hawaiian music. Greg and Junko MacDonald's CD, Aloha from Hawaii, gives us the feeling of being back on the island again. We recently played it at a luau party at our home and it was a hit. Such a great CD, we are glad we purchased it.

Susan E. Williams

Absolutely love this CD!!!
I have been a big fan of Greg & Junko since I happened to catch a live performance at Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center several years ago. I have purchased all their CD's and just purchased this latest. It was as great as the others. I play it at my office as background music. Can't recommend it enough.

Great CD!
I live in Virginia now, but evertime I play this CD, I'm instantly back in the islands. Close your eyes, relax and you would swear that you can hear the ocean and feel the breeze.
