Son of seminal slack-key artist Gabby "Pops" Pahinui and member of the eclectic Pahinui Bros. Band Cyril Pahinui brings a rich, American folkie texture to the genre due as much to an incorporation of wide-ranging influences as to his 12-string guitar approach. Fast pieces like "Moani Ke'ala" benefit from a near-carillon sound, while the more deliberately paced songs take on a hymnal resonance. Resourceful guitar work meets grade-A yodeling vocals here, plus the impossible-to-top disc-closer "Lullaby for Pops," a touchingly sentimental instrumental which does the old man proud.
