MUSIC VOYAGER
Yellow Roads: Italy – Amalfi Coast & Capri

 

Hosted by Paulino Duran, the Music Voyager travels the length of the Amalfi coast line, following the yellow roads off the main highways. From the sun drenched cliffs of Positano cruising along each seaside resort and small towns, to tasting the heavenly cuisines and sampling the unique culture as it becomes more of a personal journey, the team ends up at a private performance of the Tarantula musicians in a wine cellar on the southern coast of Italy.

Pomaikaʻi Lyman

NĀ MELE: Pomaika‘i Lyman

 

Singer/musician Pomaikaʻi Lyman grew up under the guidance of a talented musical family, the Keawe Aiko ʻohana. Her special mentor was none other than a beloved and legendary voice in Hawaiian music, her grandmother, Genoa Keawe. Lyman steps into the spotlight in this episode of our traditional Hawaiian music series. She’s accompanied by Po‘okela Wood on guitar, Keao Costa on bass, and Jeff Au Hoy on steel guitar. Lyman’s family and friends also share the stage to perform songs including “Beautiful Kahana” and the popular hula song “Noho Paipai,” also known as the “Rocking Chair Hula.” Lyman’s family brought some of Aunty Genoa Keawe’s furniture to our studio to bring a sense of mana and a feeling of home.
