Kahauanu Lake: A Fond Farewell to Uncle K

ShareThisEarlier this month, the world bid farewell to one of Hawai’i’s most important musicians, Kahauanu Lake. Lake was a scholar, composer, singer, and ukulele player who influenced the style and substance of Hawaiian music beginning in the late 1950’s. On this Prince Kuhi’o Day, we remember “Uncle K” as he was when HPR’s Noe Tanigawa visited him in 2004 at his studio in Ka’imuki. Uncle K's career spanned 6 decades before his death March 6th of this year.
