Greg & Junko MacDonald: Pan A Cabana

Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White

Prez Prado, king of Latin music in the 50's, gave us this and a dozen others. He was my first Latin influence.

La Paloma

Nostalgia at it's best. A most beautiful melody. Guitar solo will put you in the clouds.

Lovers young and old like this song. It makes them want to be together.

A happy old Hawaiian song inspired by net fishing from shore. Great Hawaiian Steel Guitar solo.

Sanoe

Written by Queen Liliuokalani, this is a haunting love song, done with just piano, pans, and a little bass.
