“And then there was the music… some of the worlds’ greatest and most expressive guitarists live and work in Hawaii. Here’s one of my favorite guitarists in the world, Ledward Kaapana, with his sometime accompaniest, the equally evocative Mike Kaawa. That’s me directing them both for a sequence in “Aloha,” a real dream come true. The movie was always going to be a stew of intoxicating elements, set to Ledward’s guitar and other music that you might hear on any given week in Hawaii. Talk about the Aloha spirit… it lives in every note of these wonderful artists’ work.”
