In the late 1920s and into the early 1930s, Kalama’s Quartet represented a classic Hawaiian sound popular both in the Hawaiian Islands and on the American mainland. The quartet pushed the musical boundaries within the genre, as they experimented with four-part vocal harmonies and two acoustic steel guitars. With the onset of the Great Depression, the desire for a more Americanized sound, and the invention of the electric Hawaiian guitar, classic Hawaiian music lost much of its appeal. This collection includes the quartet’s last known recordings before it disbanded. Liner notes include a brief history of the group.
