Hal Kinnaman, Keali`i Reichel, Hula and Respecting Culture

This week's podcast, we're paying respect to Ukulele and Slack Key Legend, Hal Kinnaman. The team discuss Hal's Legacy and how he personally effected Ukulele Underground. Aldrine shares the famous Spider Warmup originally taught by Hal. Using Hal as an example, the guys talk about people coming to Hawaii and learning Hawaiian music. They also consider the importance of perpetuating culture, and why some people might guard traditions more securely. This leads to a conversation on respect when passing on culture. Other topics included this week are Ka Uluwehi O Ke Kai, Hula, Keali`i Reichel, and Hawaiian names. The podcast ends with with a reminder that Aloha Friday will be on Instagram this week, and that there is a new UU+ Solo Lesson.
