Take Me Home To Hawaiʻi - A Tribute to Roland Cazimero (2020)
Roland Cazimero made his debut in the Hawaiian recording industry in 1969 as one-third of the group, The Sunday Mānoa, alongside Peter Moon and brother Robert Cazimero. In 1976, Robert and Roland became the iconic duo, The Brothers Cazimero, spawning a 40+ year career of albums, Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards and unforgettable hits. Roland’s artistry for song arrangement and composition also ventured him into solo projects honoring Hōkūleʻa, Pele, and Kamehameha.
Many aspiring musicians looked to Roland as a source of inspiration to grow in their own skills and Eric is no exception. This project is a true testimony; an opportunity to honor Roland's legacy and musical style with one of Roland’s very own compositions.
