AllMusic Review by

A descendent of slack key guitar pioneer Gabby Pahinui, Cyril Pahinui keeps the flame of traditional Hawaiian music alive on 2007's HE'EIA. A collection of 12 compositions that lilt, relax, and transport the listener, HE'EIA is a sweetly seductive listening experience. These instrumentals aren't mere aural wallpaper, however. Pahinui's deft, complex fingerpicking will keep guitar enthusiasts and technique heads in rapt attention.
