Israel Kamakawiwo’ole was a Hawaiian musician and entertainer. Apart from his music, Israel was also known for being vocal about indigenous rights of his people. He often used to be called the “Gentle Giant” because he had such a gentle voice, despite having such a massive frame. You might not even be aware of it, but you must have heard one of his songs before!
He is perhaps best known for creating the arrangement for the “Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World” medley. The way he plays his ukulele is just so soothing, don’t you think? Since its release, the song has been featured in many movies. Because of this, Kamakawiwo’ole is still very influential in the Hawaiin music scene.
