The Rotary Club of West Honolulu's annual David Malo Banquet will be held on Friday, October 12th to honor Cyril Pahinui.  The Banquet will be at the Hale Koa Hotel, Waikiki Ballroom.
Cyril Pahinui, born April 21, 1950 grew up on the remote Windward Coast of O‘ahu on Hawaiian Homestead in Waimānalo. The Pahinui home on Bell Street was a gathering place for the top Hawaiian musicians. Jam sessions of mythological proportions lasted for days. It was here that Cyril learned music in the traditional way, nana ka maka; ho‘olohe ka pepeiao, pa‘a ka waha, by listening and watching some of Hawai‘i’s foremost musicians, including his dad, music legend Gabby Pahinui. Cyril began participating in these kanikapila from the time he could hold a ‘ukulele, at 7, learning ki ho‘alu, and by age 12, performing professionally and soon after, recording on five of his father’s best known releases.
