Cyril Pahinui passed away Saturday night at The Queen's Medical Center. He was 68.

The Waimanalo native recorded more than 50 albums with many of Hawaii’s top musicians, including Peter Moon, Aunty Genoa Keawe, Kamakahi and Jeff Peterson.

He had been hospitalized since February 2016 for pneumonia and a collapsed lung.

In 2017, the slack key guitar master was named a heritage fellow by the National Endowment for the Arts. Details on a memorial service have not yet been announced.

We'll feature the music of Uncle Cyril Pahinui on next Sunday's show.
