George Kahumoku, Jr.'s Na 'ano 'ano: The Seeds features Hawaiian slack key guitar with vocals by one of this year's ki ho'alu Grammy winners.

Kahumoku's album is already highly-lauded and many feel it is in hot competition for a Grammy itself.

Ho's production Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, vol.1 won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Hawaiian Music Album. Featured in the release were musicians to Daniel Ho, George Kahumoku, Jr., Keoki Kahumoku, Led Ka’apana, Ozzie Kotani, Cyril Pahinui and Da Ukulele Boyz (Peter de Aquino & Garrett Probst).
