Hawaiian music and culture represented on the big screen
23 June 2000 | by John BookSee all my reviews

Robert Mugge has done a few documentaries on blues music, and here he takes his love of "roots music" by honoring and examining Hawaiian music. Mugge interviews musical scholars and musicians who make the music happen, and also finds out what makes their musicianship so special. Mixing time honored traditions with a need to expand and open up to the future, "Hawaiian Rainbow" is a well done documentary that makes you feel like pulling up a bucket, bringing out your 'ukulele and jamming with friends. A lot has happened to Hawaiian music since the 1988 release of this film, so this becomes a time capsule of sorts.
