Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole music review

The best of Hawaii's top-selling musical artist of all time


Over the Rainbow

Once a car boot sale classic, a British TV ad has brought Kamakawatsit’s ukulele-driven medley ‘Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World’ to popular attention in the UK. But the track, recorded in one take and left on the shelf for years, made him Hawaii’s biggest-selling artist of all time. The rest of this best of is rather different, mostly showcasing Iz’s knack for fusing jazz and reggae with trad Hawaiian sounds, with the sadly departed artist’s oddly comforting voice shining throughout.
