“Eddie realized the importance of documenting the wealth of traditional knowledge shared by his many kumu. His life work was committed to building an archive of the stories and music of Hawai‘i."

This songbook ensures that songs shared with Eddie, and those he composed, can be played and sung by families, children, students, musicians, and lovers of Hawaiian music,” says Myrna Kamae, executive director of The Hawaiian Legacy Foundation. “We are so excited to share this gift!”

Our donation also helps the HLF preserve the extensive videos he produced as well as his years of notes on the background of the song at The University of Hawaii West O’ahu
