    "Hawaiian Rainbow hits everything you love about Hawaiian music: traditional chants, percussion, ukulele, slack-key and steel guitar, falsetto singing and more. Combining relaxed interviews and in the field footage with awesome performances and dances, this rainbow will leave you smiling, and with a greater understanding of just what goes into this deceptively simple music. Origins of instruments and definitions of styles are sufficient enough to make the movie a helpful research aid, but it's the performances that will have expats crying."
