'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' collects some of Hawaiian ukulele player Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's most famous songs.

His reworking of 'Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World' propelled Kamakawiwo'ole into the public eye after appearing on numerous film and television soundtracks. The album features his unique covers as well as a selection of traditional Hawaiian songs. Available for the first time ever, the definitive collection of Hawaiian music legend -- the gentle giant behind the world-renowned version of `Over The Rainbow', one of the most recognised songs of the last twenty years.

Over a decade after his death, his unforgettable music and legacy are captured here in these beautiful renditions of `What A Wonderful World' and `Wind Beneath My Wings' alongside traditional Hawaiian melodies on this truly breathtaking new album.
