IZ (Israel Kamakawiwo’ole) Songs of Hawaii
Sharing a couple of my favorite Bruddah Iz songs about Hawaii that I found on YouTube recently…
Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, or just “Bruddah IZ”, was a local Hawaiian singer, songwriter, and ukulele master that captured the hearts of the world with his famous single – Somewhere Over the Rainbow, as well as other songs.

Whoa, here’s a version of that with excellent sound through the headphones – sounds 100% better.

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.
Breddah Iz…if ever a peaceful, gentle soul…if everyone on earth was a bit like him I’m pretty sure there’d be no more wars.
Vern – LOVE IZ!! My favorite song is “In This Life”. He was a very talented young man with an incredibly gentle voice.
