Aunty Genoa Keawe & Family

Aunty Genoa Keawe with Danny Akaka and his Lovely Wife

Had the opportunity to be able to videotape a rare Big Island performance of Aunty Genoa Keawe with her family band. She had turned 88 the week before the show, and her voice is in excellent form. Opening the show is The Lim Family. Lots of hula accompanying this old time Hawaiian music. It was the opening night of the 1st annual Moku O Keawe International Hula Festival at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.

Trying to find an underwriter/sponsor for this program and for the hula series. Email us at arttvhawaii@hotmail.com if you are interested.

Thai Cowboy Music - Live at the Weekend Market in Bangkok, Thailand

Music by The Blue Mountain Boys

This is a bunch of Thai guys who dress up in cowboy outfits, and play bluegrass music on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, percussion, and vocal at the Bangkok weekend market.
Its one of the biggest marketplaces in the world, with clothing, food, toys, kitchen ware, and bluegrass music cd's available for purchase.
Ton, Num and the boys perform in front of their stall. Some of their friends come down, dressed the part, just to hang out and look like cowboys, even rolling their own cigarettes. It's way cool.
And some great music.
